1. A method for producing an electro-optical device in which an electro-optical material is put between a pair of substrates opposed to each other, at least a portion of opposing surfaces of the substrates is insulative, a plurality of source wirings and a plurality of gate wirings are formed crossing each other on the surface of one of said pair of substrates and a transparent pixel electrode and a thin film transistor are formed at each of the crossing points between the source wirings and the gate wirings, wherein the method comprises:

  • a step G1 of forming a first metal film on the surface of said one substrate,a first photolithographic step G2 of patterning the first metal film to form a gate electrode and a gate wiring,a step G3 of forming a first insulator film, a semiconductor film and an ohmic contact film on the surface of said one substrate after the first photolithographic step,a second photolithographic step G4 of patterning the semiconductor active film and the ohmic contact film to form a semiconductor portion above the gate electrode in a state isolated from other portions,a step G5 of forming a second metal film on the surface of said one substrate after the second photolithographic step,a third photolithographic step G6 of patterning the second metal film and the ohmic contact film to form a source electrode, a drain electrode and a channel portion,a step G7 of forming a passivation film on the surface of said one substrate after the third photolithographic step, anda fourth photolithographic step G8 of patterning the passivation film to form a contact hole reaching the gate wiring, a contact hole reaching the drain electrode and a contact hole for source wiring and gate wiring connection terminals,a step G9 of forming a transparent conductive film on the surface of said one substrate after the fourth photolithographic step, anda fifth photolithographic step G10 of patterning the transparent conductive film to form a transparent pixel electrode.
