Quantum mechanical (QM) simulation of the capacitance-voltage (C-V) characteristics was also performed for analyzing the electrical thickness, dielectric constant, and the interface trap density level of the zirconium dioxide layer. For gate current analysis, both the bulk high-κ layer and interfacial silicate layer were considered in the simulation. In the open-boundary system, the quantum transmitting boundary method (QTBM) was used to connect the propagating waves in the metal gate with the stationary waves at the silicon surface. The complex eigenvalues, or the lifetimes of the quasi-bound states, were calculated to obtain the gate current density. It is shown that the simulated gate current agrees with the experimental measurements obtained from aluminum gate/zirconium dioxide/n-type silicon (Al/ZrO 2/n-Si) MIS devices with equivalent oxide thickness (EOT) of ∼2.5 nm. © 2002 IEEE.||Source Title:||IEEE International Conference on Semiconductor Electronics, Proceedings, ICSE||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/84120||ISBN:||0780375785|
