Thin-film transistors (TFTs) with a high stability and a high field-effect mobility have been achieved using W-doped indium oxide semiconductors in a low-temperature process (∼ 150 °C). By incorporating WO3 into indium oxide, TFTs that were highly stable under a negative bias stress were reproducibly achieved without high-temperature annealing, and the degradation of the field-effect mobility was not pronounced. This may be due to the efficient suppression of the excess oxygen vacancies in the film by the high dissociation energy of the bond between oxygen and W atoms and to the different charge states of W ions.
