Abstract

We investigated the structural modification of solution-processed nanocrystalline InGaO films via high-pressure annealing and fabricated thin-film transistors. The grain size of InGaO films annealed in the presence of oxygen under high pressure was significantly changed compared the films annealed without high pressure ambient. The O1s XPS peak distribution of InGaO films annealed under high pressure at 350 °C showed a peak similar to that of the non-pressure annealed film at 500 °C. The high-pressure annealing process promoted the elimination of organic residues and dehydroxylation of the metal hydroxide (M-OH) complex. We confirmed the improved device performance of high-pressure annealed InGaO-based thin-film transistors owing to the reduction in charge-trap density.
