The conventional continuous scan and Delay-ID, lin methods of negative bias temperature instability characterization are not applicable for polycrystalline silicon thin-film transistors due to significant recovery effect and mobility degradation, respectively. An improved on-the-fly (OTF) method is proposed to simultaneously extract the threshold voltage shift and mobility degradation. In addition, the improved OTF method is more accurate than the continuous scan due to less recovery effect. The exponents of reaction-diffusion mechanism can be clearly determined using the new method.
