Insertion of Atomera’s MST® film (also referred to as oxygen insertion or “OI”) into a silicon channel has already been demonstrated to be effective in enabling precise dopant profile control, NBTI improvement, carrier mobility improvement and gate leakage reduction of poly-Si/SiON and HKMG stack, providing benefits of performance enhancement of power devices, SRAM Vmin reduction, extension of planar devices, and PTS (punch-through stop) layer for bulk FinFET devices. This presentation will provide basic physics behind the improvement through theoretical calculations and experimental results. Modification of the formation enthalpy of various dopants and point defects enables remote control of doping profiles away from the inserted film via interstitial trapping. 18O tracer experiments revealed dynamic behaviors of oxygen exchange among OI layers and between OI layers and gate oxide. This dynamic nature of oxygen provides MST films with various benefits such as thermal stability sufficient for CMOS processing, a 35% improvement of surface roughness scattering rate of inversion electrons, as well as a 6X improvement of charge-to breakdown of thin-gate dielectrics. Atomera’s paper will dive into the significant impact for HKMG stack as the MST layers reduce intermixing and interfacial charge dipoles, which lowers remote charge scattering and provides viable knobs for the performance boost and new designs of future electronic devices.
