Abstract

Amorphous InGaZnO (a-IGZO) thin film transistors (TFTs) with double-layer gate dielectric were fabricated at low temperature and characterized. A stacked 150 nm-thick SiO 2/50 nm-thick HfO 2 dielectric layer was employed to improve the capacitance and leakage characteristics of the gate oxide. The SiO 2/HfO 2 showed a higher capacitance of 35 nF/cm 2 and a lower leakage current density of 4.6 nA/cm 2 than 200 nm-thick SiO 2. The obtained saturation mobility (μ sat), threshold voltage (V th), and subthreshold swing (S) of the fabricated TFTs were 18.8 cm 2 V -1 s -1, 0.88 V, and 0.48 V/decade, respectively. Furthermore, it was found that oxygen pressure during the IGZO channel layer deposition had a great influence on the performance of the TFTs.
