Engineering The Palladium-WSe₂ Interface Chemistry for Field Effect Transistors with High-Performance Hole Contacts (Amer Chemical Soc, 2018-12-07)Palladium has been widely employed as a hole contact to WSe₂ and has enabled, at times, the highest WSe₂ transistor performance. However, there are orders of magnitude variation across the literature in Pd-WSe₂ contact ...
A Multifield and Frequency Electrically Detected Magnetic Resonance Study of Atomic-Scale Defects in Gamma Irradiated Modern MOS Integrated Circuitry (IEEE-Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc, 2018-11-09)The role of specific atomic-scale defects involved in total ionizing dose radiation in the metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors of the 1980s and 1990s was identified in large part with electron paramagnetic ...
A New Analytical Tool for the Study of Radiation Effects in 3-D Integrated Circuits: Near-Zero Field Magnetoresistance Spectroscopy (Institute of Electrical Electronics Engineers Inc, 2018-12-06)We demonstrate that a new technique, near-zero field magnetoresistance (NZFMR) spectroscopy, can explore radiation damage in a wide variety of devices in a proof-of-concept study. The technique has great potential for the ...
Positive Bias Instability in ZnO TFTs with Al₂O₃ Gate Dielectric (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2019-03-31)Positive bias instability stress (PBI) was done on ZnO thin-film transistors (TFTs) with Al₂O₃ deposition at 100°C and 250°C. The threshold voltage (VT), transconductance (g ₘ), and subthreshold slope (SS) were monitored ...
Sensitivity of High-k Encapsulated MoS₂ Transistors to I-V Measurement Execution Time High-k encapsulated MoS₂ field-effect-transistors were fabricated and electrically characterized. Comparison between HfO₂ and Al₂O₃ encapsulated MoS₂ FETs and their I-V response to execution time are shown. Changes in gate ...
Ferroelectric TiN/Hf₀.₅Zr₀.₅O₂/Tin Capacitors with Low-Voltage Operation and High Reliability for Next-Generation FRAM Applications In this study, we investigated the ferroelectric properties of Hf₀.₅Zr₀.₅O₂ (HZO) thin films with different thicknesses (5-20 nm) deposited by atomic layer deposition for the development of future ferroelectric random ...
Electrical Characterization of the Temperature Dependence in CdTe/CdS Heterojunctions Deposited In-Situ by Pulsed Laser Deposition The I-V and C-V characteristics of CdTe/CdS heterojunctions deposited in-situ by Pulsed Laser Deposition (PLD) were evaluated. In-situ deposition enables the study of the CdTe/CdS interface by avoiding potential impurities ...
Dual-Gate MoS₂ Transistors with Sub-10 NM Top-Gate High-K Dielectrics High quality sub-10 nm high-k dielectrics are deposited on top of MoS₂ and evaluated using a dual-gate field effect transistor configuration. Comparison between top-gate HfO₂ and an Al₂O₃/HfO₂ bilayer shows significant ...
Effect of Film Thickness on the Ferroelectric and Dielectric Properties of Low-Temperature (400 ⁰C) Hf₀.₅Zr₀.₅O₂ Films We report on the effect of the Hf₀.₅Zr₀.₅O₂ (HZO) film thickness on the ferroelectric and dielectric properties using pulse write/read measurements. HZO films of thicknesses ranging from 5 to 20 nm were annealed at 400 ...
Investigation of Negative Bias Temperature Instability Dependence on Fin Width of Silicon-On-Insulator-Fin-Based Field Effect Transistors The fin width dependence of negative bias temperature instability (NBTI) of double-gate, fin-based p-type Field Effect Transistors (FinFETs) fabricated on silicon-on-insulator (SOI) wafers was investigated. The NBTI ...
