摘要: In this study, p-channel polycrystalline silicon-germanium thin-film transistors (poly-Si1-xGex TFTs) with different Ge contents in the channel layer were fabricated and characterized. A novel device process was developed to fabricate the test samples. The device structure utilized the in situ boron-doped poly-Si0.79Ge0.21 with an extremely low resistivity (below 2 m Omega cm) as the source/drain and the undoped poly-Si (or Si1-xGex) as the channel layer. It is observed that the addition of Ge atoms in the channel would significantly increase the amount or trap density at grain boundaries thus degrading the device performance. Based on these results, we recommend the use of poly-Si1-xGex source/drain to reduce the contact resistance but do not recommend that it is appropriate to replace poly-Si as the channel material of TFTs.
