Abstract [en]

In this work we report on methods to introduce crystalline rare-earth (RE) oxides with high (k > 3.9) dielectric constants (high-k) in a CMOS process flow. Key process steps compatible with crystalline praseodymium oxide (Pr2O3) high-k gate dielectric have been developed and evaluated in metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) structures and n-MOS transistors fabricated in an adapted conventional bulk process. From capacitance-voltage measurements a dielectric constant of k = 36 has been calculated. Furthermore an alternative process sequence suitable for the introduction of high-k material into silicon on insulator (SOI) MOS-field-effect-transistors (MOSFET) is presented. The feasibility of this process is shown by realization of n- and p-MOSFETs with standard SiO2 gate dielectric as demonstrator. SiO2 gate dielectric can be replaced by crystalline RE-oxides in the next batch fabrication.
