Abstract

Highly stable and high performance solution-processed amorphous oxide semiconductor thin film transistors (TFTs) were produced using a Li and Zr co-doped ZnO-based aqueous solution. Li and Zr co-doping at the appropriate amounts enhanced the oxide film quality in terms of enhanced oxygen bonding and reduced defect sites. The 0.5 mol% Li and 1.0 mol% Zr co-doped ZnO TFTs annealed at 320 °C exhibited noticeably lower threshold voltage shifts of 3.54 V under positive bias stress and -2.07 V under negative bias temperature stress than the non-doped ZnO TFTs. The transistors revealed a good device mobility performance of 5.39 cm 2 V -1 s -1 and an on/off current ratio of 10 8 when annealed at 320 °C, compared to a mobility performance of 2.86 cm 2 V -1 s -1 and an on/off current ratio of ∼10 7 when annealed at 270 °C. Our results suggest that Li and Zr co-doping can be a useful technique to produce more reliable and low temperature solution-processed oxide semiconductor TFTs.
