20130095617THIN FILM TRANSISTOR AND METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING THE SAME - An object is to provide a thin film transistor with small off current, large on current, and high field-effect mobility, A silicon nitride layer and a silicon oxide layer which is formed by oxidizing the silicon nitride layer are stacked as a gate insulating layer, and crystals grow from an interface of the silicon oxide layer of the gate insulating layer to form a microcrystalline semiconductor layer; thus, an inverted staggered thin film transistor is manufactured. Since crystals grow from the gate insulating layer, the thin film transistor can have a high crystallinity, large on current, and high field-effect mobility. In addition, a buffer layer is provided to reduce off current.04-18-2013
