  • Patent number: 10648069
    Abstract: A MgO layer is formed using a process flow wherein a Mg layer is deposited at a temperature <200° C. on a substrate, and then an anneal between 200° C. and 900° C., and preferably from 200° C. and 400° C., is performed so that a Mg vapor pressure >100.6 Torr is reached and a substantial portion of the Mg layer sublimes and leaves a Mg monolayer. After an oxidation between ?223° C. and 900° C., a MgO monolayer is produced where the Mg:O ratio is exactly 1:1 thereby avoiding underoxidized or overoxidized states associated with film defects. The process flow may be repeated one or more times to yield a desired thickness and resistance x area value when the MgO is a tunnel barrier or Hk enhancing layer. Moreover, a doping element (M) may be added during Mg deposition to modify the conductivity and band structure in the resulting MgMO layer.

  • Patent number: 10199576
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a display panel and a fabricating method thereof, and a display device. The fabricating method for the display panel includes forming a glass adhesive layer on a packaging region of a first substrate, forming an OLED device on a display region of the first substrate, and aligning the first substrate with a second substrate, and forming a sealing structure between the first substrate and the second substrate by irradiating the packaging region with laser. The fabricating method for the display panel according to an embodiment of the present disclosure avoids the occurrence of the phenomenon that the coated glass adhesive layer and the evaporated organic light emitting layer are offset during the subsequent packaging process, by fabricating the glass adhesive layer on the substrate for forming the OLED device, thereby the production efficiency of the overall packaging process is enhanced.

  • Patent number: 10193100
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an array substrate, a fabricating method thereof, and a display device. The array substrate comprises a thin film transistor, an auxiliary electrode which is arranged in a same layer as an active layer of the thin film transistor, and a transparent cathode which is electrically connected with the auxiliary electrode, wherein the active layer is an oxide semiconductor, and the auxiliary electrode is an electric conductor which is formed by performing a modification treatment on the oxide semiconductor. According to technical solutions of the present invention, the active layer and the auxiliary electrode are arranged in a same layer, a pattern of the active layer and the auxiliary electrode can be formed by a same etching process, and a separate process for forming the auxiliary electrode is not required, thus reducing the overall process time of the array substrate and saving the fabricating cost.
