Title: High-performance chemical-bath deposited CdS thin-film transistors with ZrO{sub 2} gate dielectric

Abstract

We demonstrate high performance chemical bath deposited CdS thin-film transistors (TFTs) using atomic layer deposited ZrO{sub 2} based high-k gate dielectric material. Our unique way of isolation of the CdS-based TFTs devices yielded significantly low leakage current as well as remarkable lower operating voltages (<5 V) which is four times smaller than the devices reported on CdS-based TFTs using SiO{sub 2} gate dielectric. Upon thermal annealing, the devices demonstrate even higher performance, including μ{sub FE} exceeding 4 ± 0.2 cm{sup 2} V{sup −1}S{sup −1}, threshold voltage V{sub T} of 3.8 V, and I{sub on-off} of 10{sup 4}–10{sup 5}, which hold much promise for applications in future electronic and optical devices.
