|Abstract:||Annealing behavior of thin gate oxide after quasi-breakdown (QB) has been investigated. The result implies that the QB leakage current is consisted of two components: the enhanced tunneling due to locally thinned oxide at interface-damaged region and the conduction through a shortening path. The change of leakage current during annealing is a competitive process of changes of these two components - the recovery of interface damage and the expansion of the shortening path in bulk oxide. A unified model is proposed to explain the mechanism of conduction in QB. © 2000 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.|
