Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Polycrystalline Si (poly-Si) TFTs with Schottky contacts at the source and drain have been fabricated. The Schottky contacts were made of Ni-silicide. Poly-Si films were prepared by using solid phase crystallization. TFTs were fabricated using a high temperature process. The Schottky source/drain contacts were formed by employing the self-aligned silicide (salicide) process. TFTs showed a good switching characteristic having the on/off current ratio of about 7 orders of magnitude. Due to the nature of the Schottky contact it is possible to reduce the kink in drain current.
