ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||We report for the first time the following new findings in charge trapping in HfO 2 gate dielectrics: 1) Using an ultrafast electronic method to measure the MOSFET V th, two different traps (fast and slow) are identified, each leading to charge trapping characteristics with different dependence on the frequency of dynamic stress. 2) First-principle calculation of oxygen vacancy related traps in HfO 2 reveals the negative U (-U) property of traps in the strongly ionized HfO 2 dielectric. Each trap can trap two electrons and lower the trap energy due to a large lattice relaxation. 3) A physic-based model for the frequency dependence of dynamic BTI is established. The BTI frequency dependence of the slow traps is explained by the -U property of these traps. Excellent agreement between the simulation and experimental data was achieved. © 2004 IEEE.||Source Title:||Technical Digest - International Electron Devices Meeting, IEDM||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/84003||ISSN:||01631918|
