In this study, the time response behavior of low-temperature polycrystalline silicon (LTPS) thin-film transistors (TFTs) to x-ray irradiation pulses with different frequencies is analyzed. The formulas for the time response of excited and recovery behaviors are proposed for possible use in circuit performance enhancement in real x-ray irradiation situations. The predicted and measured results fit fairly well, which is important in the development of x-ray image sensors using LTPS TFTs.
