The role of dimerization of atomic hydrogen to give molecular hydrogen in determining negative bias temperature instability (NBTI) kinetics is explored analytically. The time dependency of NBTI involving molecular hydrogen was found to obey a power law with a slope of 1∕6, as opposed to the 1∕4 slope derived for a reaction involving atomic hydrogen. The implications of this dimerization reaction for voltage and temperature acceleration are also discussed. Simulation results validating these… CONTINUE READING
