摘要

The bias polarity-dependent inelastic electron tunneling spectroscopy is employed to detect the thermal stability of the Ta-Pt/SiO2/Si and Ta-Pt/HfO2/Si structures. This work provides a direct evidence that the Fermi-level pinning of metal gates is counted for the generation of extrinsic states due to interface interaction. A Ta2O5 layer forms at the Ta-Pt/SiO2 interface during thermal annealing whereas only an intermittent Ta-O bond is observed at the Ta-Pt/HfO2 interface. Although the heat of formation of HfO2 is lower than that of SiO2, Si presumably diffuses into HfO2 layer and replaces Hf atoms during the high-temperature annealing.
