ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1109/LED.2008.920755||Abstract:||We report the integration of nickel platinum germanosilicide (Ni1-yPtySiGe) contacts in tri-gate FinFETs with silicon germanium source/drain stressors for enhanced drive current performance. The structural and electrical properties of Ni1-yPtySiGe contacts with platinum (Pt) concentrations up to 20 atomic % (at. %) were explored for FinFET integration. Our results show that Ni1-y PtySiGe incorporated with 10 at. % Pt shows superior morphological stability, a suitably low sheet resistivity and the lowest Schottky hole barrier height (φB P) among the Ni1-yPtySiGe candidates evaluated. The low φB P (0.309 eV) provides a 15% reduction in series resistance Rseries. With a superior morphological stability and reduced Rseries, FinFETs integrated with Ni0.90Pt0.10SiGe contacts exhibit an overall 18% improvement in drive current compared to FinFETs with NiSiGe contacts. © 2008 IEEE.||Source Title:||IEEE Electron Device Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/82868||ISSN:||07413106||DOI:||10.1109/LED.2008.920755|
