Synthesis and investigation of new materials in MIS structures for the development of physical foundations of CMOS technologies of nanoelectronics


Certain results of experimental investigations of recent years devoted to new materials of undergate dielectrics and gates for field-effect MOS transistors based on high-k metal oxides and metal layers, respectively, are presented. The laboratory technology of fabrication of a functional field-effect transistor based on the TaN/LaAlO3/Si structure is described briefly.
