  2. 2. Vertical III-V/High-k Nanowire MOS Capacitors and Transistors

    Author : Jun Wu; Institutionen för elektro- och informationsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Nanowire; MOSFET; MOS capacitor; C-V; XPS; MOVPE; InGaAs; InAs; High-k; RF; Track-and-hold circuit;

    Abstract : The emerging nanowire technology in recent years has attracted an increasing interest for high-speed, low-power electronics due to the possibility of a gate-all-around (GAA) geometry enabling aggressive gate length scaling, together with the ease in incorporating high-mobility narrow band gap III-V semiconductors such as InAs on Si substrates. These benefits make vertical nanowire transistors an attractive alternative to the planar devices. READ MORE

    Abstract : High-k/metal gate stacks have been introduced in CMOS technology during the last decade in order to sustain continued device scaling and ever-improving circuit performance. Starting from the 45 nm technology node, the stringent requirements in terms of equivalent oxide thickness and gate current density have rendered the replacement of the conventional SiON/poly-Si stack unavoidable.
