Abstract: An integration scheme for realizing strained n-channel metal-oxide- semiconductor field-effect transistors (nFETS) with embedded silicon-carbon (e-Si:C) source/drain (S/D) stressors formed in close proximity to the channel was demonstrated. The stressors are termed channel-proximate (CP) Si:C S/D stressors, whose proximity to the channel improves their effectiveness in contributing to tensile strain in the channel region. Numerical simulation was performed using the finite-element method to assess the strain enhancement due to CP Si:C S/D. Key process development and material characterization were performed to understand the interaction between dopants and substitutional carbon concentration Csub. Unstrained control nFETs, nFETs with conventional Si:C S/D formed after spacers, and nFETs with CP Si:C S/D were fabricated. The nFET with CP Si:C S/D stressors achieved a drive current Ion enhancement of ∼19 and ∼8% over unstrained nFET and nFET with conventional Si:C S/D, respectively. The impact of channel orientation on I on enhancement was also investigated. © 2010 The Electrochemical Society.
