  • A thermo-mechanical stress model (TMS) is presented to explain the impact of sub-melt laser anneal (LA) on SiON dielectric and on the overall transistor performance. An Lgmin reduction of 15nm/5nm for nMOS/pMOS over our poly-Si/SiON reference, with 8% capacitance and 10% source and drain resistance (RSD) improvement, is demonstrated. Best device performance and NBTI immunity are reached by lowering the laser power and optimizing the nitrogen and fluorine profile. This minimizes the increase of… CONTINUE READING
