Title Switching device of lcd or organic electro luminescence display achieved
Abstract An amorphous oxide and a thin film transistor using the amorphous oxide. More specifically, an amorphous oxide having an electron carrier concentration of less than 10(18) /cm(3) and a thin film transistor using the amorphous oxide. The thin film transistor is provided with a source electrode (6), a drain electrode (5), a gate electrode (4), a gate insulating film (3) and a channel layer (2). As the channel layer (2), the amorphous oxide having an electron carrier concentration of less than 10(18)/cm(3) is used.

Outline of related art and contending technology BACKGROUND TECH
Is a thin film transistor (Thin Film Transistor, TFT) the gate terminal, a source terminal and a drain terminal 3 as provided with a terminal element, the film formation (deposition) on a substrate a semiconductor thin film (hole) for the movement of the electron or hole channel is used as the channel layer, by applying a voltage to the gate terminal of the current flowing in the channel layer by controlling a current between the source and drain terminals having the function of switching the active elements. Currently the most widely used as TFT is polycrystalline silicon or amorphous silicon film as a channel layer material with a liquid crystal display element Metal-Insulator-Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor(MIS-FET).
In addition, in recent years using a transparent conductive oxide polycrystalline thin film ZnO channel layer is used in the development of actively TFT (patent document 1) below. The thin film may be formed at low temperature and at the same time since it is transparent to visible light on a substrate such as a plastic plate or film (flexible) transparent TFT flexible form are possible.
However, the conventional stable amorphous phase at room temperature ZnO cannot be formed, a polycrystalline phase most ZnO since the interface between polycrystalline particles due to scattering of the electron mobility does not have to be made large. Moreover ZnO is an oxygen defect is caused to occur, generation of many carrier electrons to reduce the electrical conductivity is difficult. Because of this transistor is turned on and off of a large ratio of (ON OFF ·i′) also difficult.
In addition, patent document 2 discloses as an amorphous oxide ZnxMyInzO(x+3y/2+3z/2) (wherein, at least one element of Al M Ga and is and, the ratio x/y is in the range of z/y and 0.2-12 ratio is 0.4-1. 4 the present invention. in the range of) an amorphous oxide represented by the method has been described. However obtained in electron carrier concentration of the amorphous oxide film 1018/cm3 or more, a transparent electrode in a simple but sufficient to provide the channel layer is difficult to apply TFT was achieved. This is because the amorphous oxide film in the channel layer is made to be turned on and off ratio is sufficiently TFT could not be obtained in a normally off type TFT of and is not suitable because it has been found that the present invention.
