In this study the authors investigated the Ge outdiffusion characteristics of Hf Ox Ny Ge metal-insulator-semiconductor capacitors to determine their charge trapping behavior. Capping the Ge substrate with an ultrathin Si layer inhibits the incorporation of Ge into the high- k bulk dielectric in the form of Ge Ox, thereby diminishing the resultant oxide charge trapping. The thermal stability of the entire capacitor structure was also improved after performing an additional Si passivation process.
