The electrical properties of Al2O3/n-InGaAs metal-oxide-semiconductor capacitors (MOSCAPs) with In content of 0.53, 0.7, and 1 (InAs) have been investigated. Results show small capacitance-voltage (C-V) frequency dispersion in accumulation (1.70% to 1.85% per decade) for these MOSCAPs, mostly being assigned to border traps in Al2O3. With higher In content, shorter minority-carrier response time and smaller C-V hysteresis are observed. The reduction of C-V hysteresis might be related to the reduction of Ga-bearing oxides in Al2O3/InGaAs interfaces as indicated by x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.
