(EN) THIN FILM TRANSISTOR PANEL

Abstract
(EN)

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To enlarge an aperture ratio in a liquid crystal display device (or an organic EL display device).

SOLUTION: A gate electrode 11 of a thin film transistor 5 is formed of a transparent metal oxide including a p-type or n-type dopant, and a source electrode 15 and a drain electrode 16 are formed of the transparent metal oxides or ITOs. Accordingly, the thin film transistor 5 has a texture which allows light transmit it. Since all of the thin film transistors 5 are covered with pixel electrodes 4 mostly, the polymerization part of the thin film transistor 5 and the pixel electrode 4 contributes to an aperture ratio. Therefore, the aperture ratio can be enlarged. In addition, although a scanning line 2 and a drain line 3 which are connected to one-side ends of the gate electrode 11 and the drain electrode 16 are formed of identical transparent materials to the gate electrode 11 and the drain electrode 16, both the lines 2 and 3 are covered with auxiliary capacitance electrodes 6 which are composed of light shielding metals such as aluminum, chromium, etc.

【課題】 液晶表示装置(または有機EL表示装置)において、開口率を大きくする。
【解決手段】 薄膜トランジスタ5のゲート電極11はp型またはn型不純物を含む透明な金属酸化物によって形成され、ソース電極15およびドレイン電極16は透明な金属酸化物またはITOによって形成されている。したがって、薄膜トランジスタ5は光を透過する構造となっており、この薄膜トランジスタ5のほぼ全部を画素電極4で覆っているので、薄膜トランジスタ5と画素電極4との重合部が開口率に寄与することととなり、したがって開口率を大きくすることができる。なお、ゲート電極11およびドレイン電極16の各一端部に接続された走査ライン2およびドレインライン3は、ゲート電極11およびドレイン電極16と同一の透明な材料によって形成されているが、両ライン2、3は、アルミニウム、クロムなどの遮光性金属からなる補助容量電極6によって覆われている。
