Abstract

In this study, novel n-type double-gate (DG) junction-less (J-less) polycrystalline silicon (poly-Si) nanostrip transistors with different channel doping concentrations (NC) have been fabricated and investigated. The effects of channel doping concentration on device characteristics were examined comprehensively in this work. The experimental data show that as the channel doping concentration of the J-less device increases, the threshold voltage (VTH) becomes more negative. Besides, the drain-induced barrier lowering and the subthreshold swing of the J-less transistors become larger as the channel doping increases. We also found that as the channel doping increases, the off-current (IOFF) increases and the on-current (ION) actually decreases due to the doping-dependent mobility degradation. The conduction mechanisms under different channel doping concentrations were also investigated by TCAD simulation. The experimental results suggest that the n-type DG nanostrip J-less transistor with lower channel doping will have superior device characteristics.
