Accurate determination of the flat band voltage (VFB) is very important for extracting the effective work function of metal, and it will affect the prediction of the threshold voltage of the metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) devices. A modified method to accurately determine VFB of the In0.53Ga0.47As n-type MOS device is presented. The effects of capacitance voltage hysteresis and interface trap density at the oxide/semiconductor interface on the accuracy of the extracted VFB values are discussed. The results are also applicable to other MOS devices with high mobility channel materials.
