Then-channel poly-Si thin-film transistors (poly-Si TFT's) formed by solid phase crystallization (SPC) method on glass were measured to obtain the electrical parameters such as of I-V characteristics, mobility, leakage current, threshold voltage, and subthreshold slope. Then, devices were analyzed to obtain the reliability and appliability on TFT-LCD with large-size and high density. In n-channel poly-Si TFT with 5$\mu\textrm{m}$/2$\mu\textrm{m}$, 8$\mu\textrm{m}$, 30$\mu\textrm{m}$ devices of channel width/length, the field effect mobilities are 111, 116, 125 $\textrm{cm}^2$/V-s and leakage currents are 0.6, 0.1, and 0.02 pA/$\mu\textrm{m}$, respectively. Low threshold voltage and subthreshold slope, and good ON-OFF ratio are shown, as well. Thus. the poly-Si TFT's used by SPC are expected to be applied on TFT-LCD with large-size and high density, which can integrate the display panel and peripheral circuit on a targe glass substrate.
