Highly Engineered GeOx layers for FinFETs by Plasma Enhanced Atomic Layer Deposition

March 25, 2015 |

Germanium (Ge) is a promising candidate to enhance p-channel metal oxide silicon field transistor (MOSFET) device performance. The successful development of Ge-based field effect devices requires the integration of a high-quality dielectric with equivalent oxide thickness (EOT) less than 1 nanometer that forms an electrically well behaved semiconductor dielectric interface. Although GeOx/Ge has been found promising, the thermodynamic instability as well as the relatively low dielectric constant of GeOx requires an alternative approach. The utilization of an ultrathin Si layer, to modify the semiconductor-dielectric interface from Ge into Si, is a viable approach that has been successfully demonstrated; however, the introduction of a thin Si layer into the gate stack is incompatible with the 3D FinFET manufacturing process flow and also leads to increased EOT. It is, therefore, desirable to develop a multilayer gate-stack by atomic layer deposition (ALD), where an ultrathin GeOx layer can be thermodynamically stabilized and combined with a high-k dielectric film to meet the stringent requirement of low interface trap density and large capacitance density while maintaining a low gate leakage under the constraint of full compatibility with modern 3D FinFET geometries.

Integrated System for High-k Metal Gate Development

November 05, 2014 |

Kurt J. Lesker Company and Penn State University have jointly developed a multi-technique process tool enabling high-k metal gate development for high mobility channel transistor technology.

The dual process chamber design allows preparation of pristine semiconductor surfaces and their passivation (UHV-MBE), while the PEALD system provides state-of-the-art high-k deposition capabilities. Both process chambers are equipped with analytical ports for in-situ process monitoring and control by spectroscopic ellipsometry (SE).

Kurt J. Lesker Company® Enables World Class Vapour Deposited Perovskite Solar Cell Research

November 05, 2014 |

Solar cells work by using materials that absorb photons from sunlight in a broad spectral range and in turn effectively convert this captured light into free charges that produce electricity. Modern solar cells are based on crystalline Silicon (c-Si) which is a cheap and abundant semiconductor, however the cost to produce electricity using them is relatively high as the efficiency rates of c-Si based cells are relatively low. As a result thin film solar cells have been developed to combat crystalline Silicon's inherent inefficiencies. Technologies such as CIGS, CdTE, amorphous Silicon and OPV have all strived to create solar cells that have high efficiencies coupled with good cell stability and low manufacturing costs.
