UNSPECIFIED (2003) Performance enhancement in Si/Si0.5Ge0.5/Si strained alloy p-channel metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistors. SEMICONDUCTOR SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY, 18 (11). pp. 945-949. ISSN 0268-1242Full text not available from this repository.
Device performance is analysed in p-channel metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs), featuring a 6 nm thick, strained Si0.5Ge0.5 conduction channel for holes whose thickness exceeds the generally accepted limit for strain relaxation. MOSFETs with gate lengths down to 0.13 mum have been fabricated by an almost standard 0.25 mum CMOS process. Both the saturation drain current and hole mobility are enhanced by factors of up to three in long alloy channel devices, over comparable Si controls, and a current drive enhancement factor of 1.3 is obtained at 0.13 mum.
