Abstract: In this paper, high-performance InGaZnO (IGZO) thin-film transistors were fabricated with film-profile-engineering scheme. The impacts of gate dielectric, O-2/Ar ratio during the sputtering of the IGZO, and annealing ambient on the device performance were investigated. It is found that the turn-ON voltage of the device is closely related to the gate dielectric material. For the devices with Al2O3 as the gate dielectric, decent performance in terms of high ON/OFF current ratio (>10(8)), extremely steep subthreshold swing (62 mV/decade), and good mobility (19.8 cm(2)/V.s) is obtained. The influences of O-2/Ar flow ratio are distinct for the devices with Al2O3 gate oxide. Significant improvement in the stability of the devices to the environment is achieved with the anneal done in a low-pressure N-2 ambient.
