|Issue Date:||2009||Citation:||Chin, H.-C., Gong, X., Liu, X., Yeo, Y.-C. (2009).

ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1109/LED.2009.2024649||Abstract:||We report the first demonstration of a strained In0.53 Ga0.47As channel n-MOSFET featuring in situ doped In0.4Ga0.6As (S/D) regions. The in situ silicondoped In0.4Ga0.6As S/D was formed by a recess etch and a selective epitaxy of In0.4Ga0.6 As in the S/D by metal-organic chemical vapor deposition. A lattice mismatch of ∼0.9% between In0.53Ga0.47As and In0.4Ga0.6As S/D gives rise to lateral tensile strain and vertical compressive strain in the In0.53 Ga0.47As channel region. In addition, the in situ Si-doping process increases the carrier concentration in the S/D regions for series-resistance reduction. Significant drive-current improvement over the control n-MOSFET with Si-implanted In0.53Ga0.47 As S/D regions was achieved. This is attributed to both the strain-induced band-structure modification in the channel that reduces the effective electron mass along the transport direction and the reduction in the S/D series resistance. © 2009 IEEE.||Source Title:||IEEE Electron Device Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/82614||ISSN:||07413106||DOI:||10.1109/LED.2009.2024649|
