Through numerical simulations corroborated by an analytical subthreshold model considering drain coupling, this paper systematically investigates the short-channel effects in negative-capacitance FETs with 2D MoS2 channel (2D-NCFET). Our study indicates that, due to the impact of drain coupling on the negative-capacitance effect, the 2D-NCFET exhibits distinct short-channel behaviors such as improved average subthreshold swing and threshold-voltage roll-up with decreasing gate length. In addition, the fringe field through the high-k interlayer dielectric can significantly alter the subthreshold characteristics of the short-channel 2D-NCFET, and hence needs to be carefully taken into account. Our study may provide insights for device design using negative-capacitance FETs.
