We investigated the influence of the chemical compositions of gallium and indium cations on the performance of sol-gel-derived amorphous gallium indium zinc oxide (a-GIZO) -based thin film transistors (TFTs). A systematic compositional study allowed us to understand the solution-processed a-GIZO TFTs. We generated a compositional ternary diagram from which we could predict electrical parameters such as saturation mobility, threshold voltage, and the on/off current ratio as the constituent compositions varied. This diagram can be utilized for tailoring solution-processed amorphous oxide TFTs for specific applications.
