Abstract

The deposition processes and electronic properties of thin-film semiconductors and insulators based on silicon in relation to the fabrication of electronic devices on flexible plastic substrates are considered. The films of amorphous hydrogenated silicon (a-Si:H), nanocrystalline silicon (nc-Si), and amorphous silicon nitride (a-SiNx), and also thin-film transistors are fabricated at comparatively low temperatures (120°C, 75°C) using existing commercial plasma-chemical equipment. The parameters of thin-film transistors based on a-Si:H and fabricated at the aforementioned relatively low temperatures are compatible with those of high-temperature analogues.
