|Abstract:||In this letter, we report a novel n-channel GaAs MOSFET featuring TaN/ HfAlO/GaAs gate stack with in situ surface passivation (vacuum anneal and silane treatment), alternative gold-free palladium-germanium (PdGe) source and drain (S/D) ohmic contacts, and silicon plus phosphorus coimplanted S/D regions. With the novel in situ surface passivation, excellent capacitance-voltage characteristics with low-frequency dispersion and small stretch-out can be achieved, indicating low interface state density. This surface-channel GaAs device exhibits excellent transistor output characteristics with a high drain current on/ off ratio of 105 and a high peak electron mobility of 1230 cm2/V · s. In addition, gold contamination concerning CMOS technology can be alleviated with the successful integration of low-resistance PdGe ohmic contacts. © 2008 IEEE.|
