Abstract: A high capacitance density (Cdensity) metal-insulator-metal MIM) capacitor with niobium pentoxide (Nb2O5) whose κ value is higher than 40, is developed for integrated RF bypass or decoupling capacitor application. Nb2O5 MIM with HfO2/Al2O3 barriers delivers a high Cdensity of > 17 fF/μm2 with excellent RF properties, while maintaining comparable leakage current and reliability properties with other high-κ dielectrics. The capacitance from the dielectric is shown to be stable up to 20 GHz, and resonant frequency of 4.2 GHz and Q of 50 (at 1 GHz) is demonstrated when the capacitor is integrated using Cu-BEOL process. © 2005 IEEE.
