Replacement Gate High-k/Metal Gate nMOSFETs Using A Self-Aligned Halo-Compensated Channel Implant


A device design technique for boosting output resistance (Rout) characteristics of long-channel halo-doped nMOSFETs for replacement gate (RMG) high-k/metal gate (HK/MG) devices is proposed based on numerical simulations. We show that the self-aligned halo-compensated channel implant (HCCI) that is carried out after dummy poly gate removal provides compensation for the conventional halo doping. ... » read more

Metrology Challenges For Gate-All-Around


Metrology is proving to be a major challenge for those foundries working on processes for gate-all-around FETs at 3nm and beyond. Metrology is the art of measuring and characterizing structures in devices. Measuring and characterizing structures in devices has become more difficult and expensive at each new node, and the introduction of new types of transistors is making this even harder. Ev... » read more
