Abstract

We fabricated a-Si:H thin-film transistors by using only computer-generated masks of xerographic toner, which replaces photoresist in each patterning step. This photoresist-free process produced thin film transistors with an on/off current ratio of ∼ 107, a threshold voltage of ∼ 3 V and an electron mobility of ∼ 1 cm2 V-1 s-1.
