A new fabrication process for the patterning of organic semiconductors at the nanoscale has been developed using low temperature thermal nanoimprint lithography and the details of this process are discussed. Novel planar nanotransistors have been fabricated and characterized from poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) and we demonstrate the feasibility of using such devices as highly sensitive chemical sensors.
