<jats:p>We report combustion synthesis of polycrystalline Aluminium doped zinc oxide (AZO) at low temperature for next generation low cost, flexible thin film transistor (TFT) application. Solution processed AZO thin film has been characterized by X ray diffraction and atomic force microscopy to confirm crystallinity. In this research work TFT with solution processed AZO as channel layer has been fabricated on both rigid and flexible substrate which exhibits excellent electrical stability and improved field effect mobility of 1.2 cm2V-1S-1, threshold voltage of 15 V and on-off ratio of 106as compared to pure ZnO based TFT. All the measurements have been carried ...
