MOSFET is a kind of transistor in which the current control terminal consists of insulated gate stack. It is the most fundamental, common, and the smallest electronic device ever manufactured. The explosive advances in integrated circuits have been made possible by continuous down-scaling of this elemental device size. In order to pursue the scaling trend for next several generations, new technologies such as high-k gate insulator, metal source/drain, multiple gate structure including nanowire, and possibly III-V/Ge channel are being developed.
