In this letter, fully Ni self-aligned silicided (fully Ni-salicided) source/drain (S/D) and gate polycrystalline silicon thin-film transistors (FSA-TFTs) have been successfully fabricated on a 40-nm-thick channel layer. Experimental results show that the FSA-TFTs give increased ON/OFF current ratio, improved subthreshold characteristics, less threshold voltage rolloff, and larger field-effect mobility compared with conventional TFTs. The FSA-TFTs exhibit small S/D and gate parasitic resistance and effectively suppress the floating-body effect and parasitic bipolar junction transistor action. The characteristics of the FSA-TFTs are suitable for high-performance driving TFTs with good output characteristics and large breakdown voltage.
