Abstract: A novel n-channel strained SOI transistor featuring siliconcarbon (SiC) source/drain (S/D) regions and tensile stress silicon nitride (SiN) liner is demonstrated for the first time. Drive current IDsat enhancement contributed by the dual stressors is found to be additive and a significant increase in IDsat of 55% is observed at a gate length LG of 50 nm. In addition, we report the dependence of drive current on channel orientation, with highest IDsat observed for strained n-MOSFETs with the [010] channel direction. A study of the carrier transport characteristics indicate reduced channel backscattering and enhanced carrier injection velocity due to the strain effects. © 2006 IEEE.
