Aluminum gate/zirconium dioxide/n -type silicon (Al/ZrO 2/n-Si) metal-insulator-silicon (MIS) devices with equivalent-oxide-thickness (EOT) of ∼2.5 nm (with leakage current density of less than 2 × 10 -5 A/cm 2 at 1 V accumulation bias) were fabricated and characterized using electrical and structural analysis techniques. The simulated capacitance-voltage (C-V) curve, obtained by the self-consistent solution of Schrodinger and Poisson equations, was found to fit the measured C -V curve for the minimum (inversion) and maximum (accumulation) capacitances if dielectric constant values of IS and 25 were used for the interfacial and bulk ZrO 2 layers. It was found that the Schottky emission mechanism fits a very narrow gate voltage (V g) range of 0 < V g < 0.2 V (as this is an electrode -limited conduction) while the Frenkel-Poole (F-P) emission is the dominant current transport mechanism over 0.2 V < V g < 1.2 V in our devices. © 2002 IEEE.||Source Title:||IEEE International Conference on Semiconductor Electronics, Proceedings, ICSE||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/84368||ISBN:||0780375785|
