  • Patent number: 9997543
    Abstract: There has been a case where peeling occurs if an internal stress of a wiring of a TFT is strong. In particular, the internal stress of a gate electrode largely influences a stress that a semiconductor film receives, and there has been a case where the internal stress becomes a cause of reduction in electric characteristics of a TFT depending on the internal stress. According to the present invention, an impurity element is introduced into a wiring, or both the introduction of an impurity element and heat treatment are performed, whereby the wiring can be controlled to have a desired internal stress. It is effective that the present invention is particularly applied to a gate electrode. Further, it is possible that the introduction of an impurity element and the heat treatment are conducted to only a desired region to conduct control to attain a desired internal stress.

  • Patent number: 8184241
    Abstract: The present invention mechanically protects a surface of a miniaturized liquid crystal display device for mobile phone or the like without deteriorating image quality and without increasing a thickness of a whole display device. To achieve such an object, in the present invention, a liquid crystal display panel is constituted of a TFT substrate and a color filter substrate, a lower polarizer is adhered to a lower surface of the TFT substrate, and an upper polarizer is adhered to an upper surface of the color filter substrate. A face plate is adhered to the upper polarizer using an acrylic adhesive material which is cured by ultraviolet rays. For enhancing strength and adhesion property of the face plate, corners and side portions of the face plate are chamfered. By making a profile of the face plate smaller than a profile of the upper polarizer, the adhesion property of the face plate is enhanced.
