manufacturing capability incorporating these materials. However, the oxide TFT fabrication process is very similar to that used for amorphous (for atomic structures, see Figure C.26) silicon devices; thus the display industry can leverage much of the existing infrastructure and know-how. A key advantage amorphous oxides hold over amorphous silicon is their higher charge-carrier mobility.
