Deep-sub-tenth micron MOSFETs with gate length down to 20 nm are reported. To improve the short channel effect immunities, a novel folded channel transistor structure is proposed. The quasi-planar nature of this new variant of the vertical double-gate SOI MOSFETs simplified the fabrication process. The special features of the structure are: (1) a transistor is formed in a vertical ultra-thin Si fin and is controlled by a double-gate, which suppresses short channel effects; (2) the two gates are… Expand
