Tungsten Oxide as a Gate Dielectric for Highly Transparent and Temperature-Stable Zinc-Oxide-Based Thin-Film Transistors



Tungsten oxide is currently used as gate insulator in pH-sensing ion-sensitive field-effect transistors (ISFETs) and in electrochromic devices. Its great potential as a high-κ dielectric with high transparency and temperature stability is reported. Owing to the low gate voltage sweep necessary to turn the transistor on and off, a possible application could be as a low-voltage pixel driver in active-matrix displays in harsh environments.
