ABSTRACT
We report on the device characteristics of amorphous indium gallium zinc oxide thin-film transistors (TFTs) with aluminum (Al) electrodes. The TFTs exhibited a high performance with a field-effect mobility of 11.39 cm2/V s, a subthreshold swing of 181 mV/ decade, and an on-off ratio of 107. Further improvement in device performance was achieved by doping the source/drain contact regions, resulting in an enhanced mobility of 16.6 cm2/V s at an operating voltage as low as 5 V.

    We investigate the time-dependent shift in the threshold voltage of amorphous silicon thin-film transistor stressed with constant drain current. We observe a nonsaturating power-law time dependence, which is in contrast to the conventional stretched exponential that saturates at prolonged stress...

    We report on the characteristics of amorphous indium-gallium-zinc-oxide thin-film transistors (TFTs) in the temperature range of 10-300 K. In the range of 80-300 K, the transfer characteristics are consistent with thermally activated band conduction. Below 80 K, the drain current vs. temperature...

    Instability mechanism of amorphous InGaZnO thin-film transistors under negative bias stress (NBS) was investigated. After strong NBS stress, we observed a negligible change in the subthreshold swing which is strongly dependent on the subgap density-of-states (DOS). On the other hand, there was...
