Abstract: A key task in the emerging field of bioelectronics is the transduction between ionic/protonic and electronic signalsat high fidelity. This is a considerable challenge since the two carrier types exhibit intrinsically different physics and are bestsupported by very different materials types - electronic signals in inorganic semiconductors and ionic/protonic signals in organicor bio-organic polymers, gels, or electrolytes. Here we demonstrate a new class of organic−inorganic transducing interfacefeaturing semiconducting nanowires electrostatically gated using a solid proton-transporting hygroscopic polymer. This modelplatform allows us to study the basic transducing mechanisms as well as deliver high fidelity signal conversion by tapping into anddrawing together the best candidates from traditionally disparate realms of electronic materials research. By combiningcomplementary n- and p-type transducers we demonstrate functional logic with significant potential for scaling toward high densityintegrated bioelectronic circuitry.
