Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The short-channel performance of amorphous silicon-based thin film transistors (TFT) on high-temperature plastic substrate, was investigated. The TFT device structure was modified and plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) was used to enhance the adhesion between the SiN x buffer and the substrate. The source-gate leakage current was smaller than 0.01 nA and it was limited by the measurement apparatus. The results show that the plastic substrates were freestanding and not mounted to rigid susbtrates for fabrication, which is critical for maintaining a clean and clear back surface for the optical devices.
