We investigated ZnO surface passivation of a GaAs (100) substrate using an atomic layer deposition (ALD) process to prepare an ultrathin ZnO layer prior to ALD-HfO2 gate dielectric deposition. Significant suppression of both Ga-O bond formation near the interface and As segregation at the interface was achieved. In addition, this method effectively(More)
The high-k gate dielectric structures in stacked (HfO2/Al2O3) and nanolaminated (HfAlOx) forms with a similar apparent accumulation capacitance were atomic-layer-deposited on n-type In0.53Ga0.47As substrates, and their electrical properties were investigated in comparison with a single-layered HfO2 film. Al-oxide interface passivation in both forms proved(More)
We report on changes in the structural, interfacial, and electrical characteristics of sub-1 nm equivalent oxide thickness (EOT) HfO2 grown on InAs by atomic layer deposition. When the HfO2 film was deposited on an InAs substrate at a temperature of 300 °C, the HfO2 was in an amorphous phase with an sharp interface, an EOT of 0.9 nm, and low preexisting(More)

DOI:10.1021/am502048d R we found that the table of contents (TOC)/ abstract graphic was mistakenly uploaded. The capacitance−voltage curves of the ALD-ZnO passivated(More)
We studied the impact of H2 pressure during post-metallization annealing on the chemical composition of a HfO2/Al2O3 gate stack on a HCl wet-cleaned In0.53Ga0.47As substrate by comparing the forming gas annealing (at atmospheric pressure with a H2 partial pressure of 0.04 bar) and H2 high-pressure annealing (H2-HPA at 30 bar) methods. In addition, the(More)
The passivation effect of an Al2O3 layer on the electrical properties was investigated in HfO2-Al2O3 laminate structures grown on indium phosphide (InP) substrate by atomic-layer deposition. The chemical state obtained using high-resolution X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy showed that interfacial reactions were dependent on the presence of the Al2O3(More)
Changes in the electrical properties and thermal stability of HfO2 grown on Al2O3-passivated InSb by atomic layer deposition (ALD) were investigated. The deposited HfO2 on InSb at a temperature of 200 °C was in an amorphous phase with low interfacial defect states. During post-deposition annealing (PDA) at 400 °C, In-Sb bonding was dissociated and diffusion(More)
There is an increasing demand in the flexible electronics industry for highly robust flexible/transparent conductors that can withstand high temperatures and corrosive environments. In this work, outstanding thermal and ambient stability is demonstrated for a highly transparent Ag nanowire electrode with a low electrical resistivity, by encapsulating it(More)
