ABSTRACT
Amorphous In–Ga–Zn–O (α-IGZO) is expected for thin-film transistors (TFTs) in next-generation flat-panel displays but its intrinsic properties are not understood well and different mobility models have been applied to different films. This letter reports that a universal mobility model is obtained using a field-effect technique and capacitance-voltage method. Electrical characteristics of α-IGZO TFTs subjected to different annealing are reproduced using the mobility model and different trap densities. The present achievement will be a necessary basis to establish device and circuit simulators for α-IGZO-based electronic applications.

    A hump in the subthreshold regime of the transfer characteristics is reported for amorphous-indium-galium-zinc-oxide thin-film transistors (TFTs) when they are exposed to large positive gate bias-stress. As stress time progresses, transfer characteristics shift in two opposite directions; the...

    Ga-doped ZnO (GZO) thin film transistors (TFTs) were fabricated based on the solution-processed method and GZO TFTs were investigated according to the variation of the Ga doping concentration [Ga/Zn (%)]. A field-effect mobility of 1.63 cm2/V s and a drain current on/off ratio of 4.17×106...

    We investigated the impact of the passivation layer on the stability of indium-gallium-zinc oxide (IGZO) thin film transistors. While the device without any passivation layer showed a huge threshold voltage (Vth) shift under positive gate voltage stress, the suitably passivated device did not...

    p-type ZnO thin films have been fabricated by In and N codoping. The carrier type in the In–N codoped ZnO can be controlled by adjusting the growth conditions and good p-type conductivity is obtained at temperatures between 490 and 580 °C. The p-type behavior is improved when a buffer...

    We report on the fabrication of field-effect transistors with transparent oxide semiconductor ZnO serving as the electron channel and high-K Bi1.5Zn1.0Nb1.5O7 (BZN) as the gate insulator. The devices exhibited very low operation voltages (<4 V) due to high capacitance of the BZN dielectric. The...
