Polycrystalline silicon (poly-Si) nanowire (NW) junctionless (JL) thin-film transistors composed of gate-all-around (GAA) and multiple channels were demonstrated and characterized. The high surface-to-volume ratio of the NW and a nominal gate length of 0.25μm lead to a clear improvement in electrical performance, including a steep subthreshold swing (SS; ∼124mV/decade), a virtual absence of drain-induced barrier lowering (DIBL; 21 ± 13mV/V), and a high ION/IOFF current ratio (∼1 × 109) under a relatively low voltage condition (VD = 0.3V, VG = 5V), resulting from the multiple-channel structure and small grain boundaries and defects under the gate area.
