Ultra-thin oxynitride films have been deposited on strained Si0.82Ge0.18 layers at a low temperature by microwave plasma-enhanced chemical vapour deposition. The interface trap charge density (Dit), fixed oxide charge density (Qf/q), flatband voltage (VFB) and border trap charge (Qbt) are found to decrease with annealing up to a temperature of 800°C. Under Fowler-Nordheim (F-N) constant current stressing, the oxynitride films show an improvement in the charge trapping behaviour after annealing. The reliability characteristics have been studied using charge-to-breakdown (QBD) measurements.||Source Title:||Semiconductor Science and Technology||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/82239||ISSN:||02681242||DOI:||10.1088/0268-1242/17/2/309|
