BB6.02 - Disorder Induced Gap States at the High-k/III-V Interface 
April 23, 2014   1:45pm - 2:15pm

Frequency dispersion is a commonly observed feature in the experimental capacitance-voltage characteristics of III-V MOS devices. This characteristic has been reported on a wide variety of III-V substrates in conjunction with many different dielectrics. The conventional interface state capacitance model, which works extremely well for Si devices, does not accurately model the frequency dispersion observed in III-V systems. Different physical models have been developed to explain the origin of this frequency dispersion. One model, disorder induced gap states (DIGS), attributes this dispersion to the tunneling of carriers into a disordered region caused by oxidation of the III-V substrate. A separate model attributes this dispersion to border traps located inside and associated with the high-k dielectric. In this talk, electrical characterization, modeling and physical characterization is used to demonstrate that the observed frequency dispersion must be due to the disruption of the crystalline III-V semiconductor during oxide deposition and not due to border traps located in the high-k dielectric.Acknowledgments: The author acknowledges the SRC Global Research Collaboration, NSF ECCS-0925844, NSF ECCS-1039988, the SRC FCRP Center for Materials, Structures, and Devices, SEMATECH, and NIST for present and past support of this work.
