Abstract

Recently, there has been considerable interest in adapting printing approaches that are typically used in the graphic arts to the printing of electronic circuits and circuit components. We report the fabrication of solution-processed oxide transistors using inkjet printing. A zinc tin oxide sol-gel precursor is utilized as the ink for directly printing a thin uniform semiconducting layer. The printed device performance is significantly influenced by printing conditions such as the surface wettability and substrate temperature. The inkjet-printed transistors exhibit reproducible electrical performance, demonstrating their potential application in low-cost manufacturing of large-area flat panel displays.
