This work proposes a new method for growing the polyoxide and investigates its characteristics. Thin amorphous silicon was deposited on the first polysilicon and then recrystallized at 600°C for 24 h to form a new polysilicon. The N2O-grown polyoxide formed by this method has a higher conduction current and better stress endurance than those of the conventional polyoxide. The higher quality polyoxide, as measured by lower gate voltage shift and larger charge-to-breakdown (Qbd), is due to the smooth polyoxide/polysilicon interface which increases the stress endurance under high fields.
