Electron-hole bilayer tunnel FET for steep subthreshold swing and improved ON current

We propose a novel Tunnel field-effect transistor (TFET) concept called the electron-hole bilayer TFET (EHBTFET). This device exploits the carrier tunneling through a bias-induced electron-hole bilayer in order to achieve improved switching and higher drive currents when compared to a lateral p-i-n junction TFET. The device principle and performances are… CONTINUE READING
