Requirements of Oxides as Gate Dielectricsfor CMOS Devices
Analysis of fundamental material properties of the d-electron-based high-k dielectrics, which are under consideration for the application as gate dielectrics, indicates that this class of materials has serious limitations. However, the material intrinsic properties do not necessarily have to satisfy all performance requirements: certain properties can be modified by proper engineering. We formulate a technological approach to the requirements for gate dielectrics, which is specific to a given class of materials and aims to address negative aspects of intrinsic material properties.
