Abstract

In this study we fabricated junction-less transistors and inversion-mode transistors and their electrical characteristic was measured and compared We found that subthreshold swing decreased as the channel thickness became thinner even lower than that of the traditional inversion-mode transistor On the other hand we also used TCAD simulation to verify the mechanism of device operation According to simulation results we found the subthreshold swing of the junction-less transistor is higher than that of the inversion-mode transistor with a long channel length of 100 nm However with a short channel length of 50 nm the subthreshold swing of the junction-less transistors is lower than that of an inversion-mode transistor This result can be attributed to the fact that the junction-less transistors has a longer effective channel length On the other hand we also investigated and compared the electrical characteristics of junction-less and inversion-mode transistors with different channel thickness We found that subthreshold swing of the junction-less transistors is higher than that of the inversion-mode transistor when the channel thickness is too thick (20 nm) This is because the gate is not able to completely depleted all carrier underneath resulting unwanted leakage currents
