CLAIMS

1. A method of manufacturing an electronic device comprising a thin- film transistor, comprising the steps of:
(a) forming a source and drain electrode pattern on a substrate,
(b) depositing a silicon film on the source and drain electrode pattern to provide a transistor body comprising a channel area of the transistor,
(c) forming an insulated gate structure on the channel area of the silicon film,
(d) depositing a silicide-forming metal over the insulated gate structure and over exposed, adjacent areas of the silicon film, and
(e) reacting the metal to form a silicide with said adjacent areas of the silicon film,
the method being characterised in that the insulated gate structure is formed in step (c) as a conductive gate on an insulating film which is patterned together with the conductive gate, the unreacted metal is removed from the insulated gate structure after step (e) by means of a selective etchant to leave, at said adjacent areas, source and drain silicide parts which are self-aligned with the conductive gate, and an electrical connection is formed across the thickness of the silicon film between the source and drain electrode pattern and the respective source and drain silicide parts.

2. A method as claimed in Claim 1 , further characterised in that the regions of the silicon film between the source and drain electrode pattern and 5 the respective source and drain silicide parts are doped with conductivity type dopant to provide at least a part of the electrical connection across the thickness of the silicon film.

3. A method as claimed in Claim 2, further characterised in that the o insulated gate structure is used as a mask while introducing said conductivity type dopant into the regions of the silicon film between the source and drain electrode pattern and the respective source and drain silicide parts.

4. A method as claimed in Claim 3, further characterised in that ions of said conductivity type dopant are implanted through the silicide-forming metal between steps (d) and (e).

5. A method as claimed in Claim 3, further characterised in that ions of said conductivity type dopant are implanted through the source and drain silicide parts after removing the unreacted metal after step (e).

6. A method as claimed in Claim 2, further characterised in that the regions of the silicon film between the source and drain electrode pattern and the respective source and drain silicide parts are doped with the conductivity type dopant from the source and drain electrode pattern.

7. A method as claimed in any one of Claims 1 to 6, further characterised in that the source and drain electrode pattern is exposed at ends of the transistor body, and the source and drain silicide parts extend over these ends to contact the source and drain electrode pattern and so to form at least a part of the electrical connection across the thickness of the silicon film.

8. A method as claimed in Claim 7, further characterised in that the ends of the transistor body are tapered, and the source and drain silicide parts extend over these tapered ends.

9. A method as claimed in any one of the preceding Claims, further characterised in that the insulated gate structure is formed on the channel area with a lateral spacing between the conductive gate and the source and drain electrode pattern.

10. A method as claimed in preceding Claim 1 , further characterised in that a plurality of the transistors are formed on the substrate as switching elements in a device matrix.
