Three-dimensional (3D) integrated circuits (ICs), which contain multiple layers of active devices, have the potential to dramatically enhance chip performance, functionality, and device packing density. They also provide for microchip architecture and may facilitate the integration of heterogeneous materials, devices, and signals. However, before these(More)
A tensile-strained Si layer was transferred to form an ultra-thin (<20 nm) strained Si directly on insulator (SSDOI) structure. MOSFETs were fabricated, and for the first time, electron and hole mobility enhancements were demonstrated on strained Si directly on insulator structures with no SiGe layer present under the strained Si CbaMek.

This paper reviews progress and current critical issues with respect to the integration of germanium (Ge) surface-channel MOSFET devices as well as strained-Ge buried-channel MOSFET structures. The device design and scalability of strained-Ge buried-channel MOSFETs are discussed on the basis of our recent results. CMOS-compatible integration approaches of(More)
