A wide range of materials can be grown as high-quality colloidal nanocrystals, with properties spanning from conductors to semiconductors and insulators. Although these materials have been included in electronic devices, they usually only form a single component within the device. Choi et al. took a variety of solution-processable colloidal nanocrystals to form all of the device components. Through the development of the right materials, interfaces, and processing steps, they constructed an all-colloid field effect transistor.
