Abstract

The study addresses the factors of influence on the active matrix display that is driven by pentacene-based organic thin-film transistors (TFTs). The atmosphere and humidity conditions were found to seriously affect the performance of organic TFTs. An appropriate encapsulation layer was added to protect the organic TFTs from external damage. Organic TFTs reliability, the illumination effect and device uniformity, were also considered in the context of display application. Finally, a monochrome 3 inch 64 × 128 active-matrix twist-nematic liquid crystal display (LCD) was fabricated. The display is capable of showing video images with a refresh rate of 20 Hz. Obtained results reveal the potential of organic TFTs for active-matrix LCD technology.
