Abstract

Thin-film transistors (TFTs) were fabricated using an indium oxide (In 2O3 thin film as the n-channel active layer by RF sputtering at room temperature. The TFTs showed a thickness-dependent performance in the range of 488 nm, which is ascribed to the total carrier number in the active layer. Optimum device performance at 8-nm-thick In 2O3 TFTs had a field-effect mobility of 15.3 cm 2ċV-1ċs-1, a threshold voltage of 3.1 V, an onoff current ratio of 2.2 × 108, a subthreshold gate voltage swing of 0.25 V̇ decade-1, and, most importantly, a normally off characteristic. These results suggest that sputter-deposited In2O3 is a promising candidate for high-performance TFTs for transparent and flexible electronics.
