A New Annealing Method to Obtain High Quality Poly-Si

A new annealing method, a combination of rapid thermal annealing (RTA) and furnace annealing, has been developed to obtain a high quality poly-Si from a-Si deposited by LPCVD. This method produces a large grain poly-Si with good uniformity, which may result from the growth of relatively defect-free nucleus generated at a high temperature by RTA. Poly-Si thin film transistors fabricated by this new annealing method have higher field effect mobility and better uniformity compared with those by the conventional furnace annealing.
