S-3: Fundamentals and Applications of Oxide TFTs

Amorphous-oxide semiconductors (AOSs) have large electron mobilities > 10 cm2/(V-sec) and is employed for thin-film transistors (TFTs) in high-resolution LCDs and large-sized OLED displays. This lecture will first provide a review of the current applications of amorphous-oxide-semiconductor displays and other applications. This will be followed by a discussion on how to grow device-quality AOS films and TFTs in relation to the atomic structure, defect structure, and impurity issues, which can be controlled by the deposition and annealing conditions. More fundamental aspects, the origin of the large mobility, and the material design of amorphous- oxide semiconductors will also be discussed.
