Strained Ge channel p-type metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors grown on SiââxGex/Si virtual substrates
We have fabricated strained Ge channel p-type metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (p-MOSFETs) on Siâ.âGeâ.â virtual substrates. The poor interface between silicon dioxide (SiOâ) and the Ge channel ...
MOSFET Channel Engineering using Strained Si, SiGe, and Ge Channels
Biaxial tensile strained Si grown on SiGe virtual substrates will be incorporated into future generations of CMOS technology due to the lack of performance increase with scaling. Compressively strained Ge-rich alloys with ...
Si Industry at a Crossroads: New Materials or New Factories?
Many trends in the silicon industry could be interpreted as the herald of the end of traditional Si scaling. If this premise holds, future performance and system-on-chip applications may not be reached with conventional ...
The interfacial reaction of Ni on (100) Si₁âxGex (x=0, 0.25) and (111) Ge
The interfacial reaction of Ni with Si, Si₀.₇₅Ge₀.₂₅, and Ge at 400°C has been investigated. A uniform epitaxial NiSi film was obtained at 400°C for Ni-Silicidation on Si using rapid thermal annealing method. Similarly, ...
SiGe-On-Insulator (SGOI): Two Structures for CMOS Application
Two SiGe-on-insulator (SGOI) structures for CMOS application are presented: surface-channel strained-Si on SGOI (SSOI) and dual-channel SGOI structures. Comparisons between two structures are made from both device performance ...
