Reinforced self-assembled nano-dielectrics (R-SANDs) are fabricated by depositing a thin protective layer on high-capacitance SAND films, thus significantly improving SAND durability and expanding SAND compatibility with a broader range of semiconductor deposition techniques. Fully transparent TFTs with excellent field-effect mobilities â-140 cm2/ V·s and low operating voltages â-1.0 V are demonstrated by combining the R-SAND and an amorphous Zn-In-Sn-O transparent oxide semiconductor.
