In-cell touch sensor that can be integrated with display pixel circuit using dual gate InGaZnO thin-film transistor is proposed. Under bottom gate operation, device characteristics are not sensitive to light illumination. On the contrary, light can lead to evident subthreshold leakage when operated with top gate. This behavior allows touch sensor to be realized by sensing the ambient light using top gate operation, without affecting normal bottom gate operated devices in display pixel. Further, the proposed operation method of touch sensor needs no additional fabrication and cost, and even black matrix is not required either.
