|Abstract:||A novel tunneling field-effect transistor (TFET) with an L-shaped Ge source is investigated. The device comprises a Ge source that extends underneath a Si-channel region and separated from the drain by an insulator (SiO 2). By optimizing the overlap length of the extended source L OV and the Si body thickness T Si, the current due to vertical band-to-band tunneling (BTBT) of the Ge-Si hetero-junction could be increased significantly and is scalable with L OV. This leads to higher I ON and improved S. The SiO 2 also reduces OFF-state current I OFF by blocking leakage paths. With extensive simulation, the device physics and design guidelines of this novel structure are outlined. © 2012 The Japan Society of Applied Physics.|
