45nm Transistor Reliability

Abstract

It has been clear for a number of years that increasing transistor gate leakage with device scaling would ultimately necessitate an alternative to traditional SiON dielectrics with polysilicon gates. Material systems providing higher dielectric constants, and therefore allowing physically thicker dielectrics, have been the object of extensive research. Such… (More)
