MOSFET/CMOS Technology

In this chapter, we will first simulate a very simple 3D device. A long channel n-type MOSFET (NMOS) is the simplest 3D simulation case for unipolar devices, as it is merely an extension of a 2D simulation. There is no variation along the z direction so only two planes are needed to perform a 3D simulation. The mask layout is fairly simple and a quasi-3D simulation is used. The process steps used in this example is based on the original Stanford SUPREM-IV.GS example 5 with minor modifications.
