Research Projects

 

Research Projects conducted in Li’s group covers very wide scope including  Si technology , device reliability , and physical modeling and simulation. However, all research topics are focused on nano-CMOS devices. We presently have the following research projects:

 

High k gate dielectric/metal gate:  Because of the high tunneling current, SiO2 will be no longer suitable for gate dielectric when the CMOS transistors are scaled down to nano regime with the effective gate oxide thickness (EOT) of 1nm or less. High k dielectric with thicker physical thickness and therefore lower tunneling current will replace SiO2 as gate dielectric in the future generation MOSFETs.  HfO2 has emerged as one of the most promising high-K gate dielectrics to replace SiO2 due to its high dielectric constant, moderate energy gap and electron and hole barriers to Si. However, HfO2 has some serious problems such as low crystallization temperature, channel mobility degradation, threshold voltage instability etc. Our research is focused on new HfO2 based dielectric materials and technology to overcome these problems and further reduce the EOT to sub-0.6 nm , without sacrifice the electric performance of MOSFETs .  Metal gate will be used to replace poly-Si as gate electrode in the future generation CMOS transistors. Poly-Si gate has the following problems:  Poly-depletion, Boron penetration, gate resistance, work function not fit to the requirement of ultra-thin body Si-on-Insulator (SOI) transistors. Our research on metal gate is focused on new metal gate materials and technology to fit the requirement of the metal work function for nano-CMOS transistors, with high thermal stability. We have developed the first HfN/SiO2 and HfN/HfO2 gate stack technology, using the high thermal stability and oxygen resistance of the HfN metal gate ( publications 1,5,8,9,11) , reaching 0.8nm EOT of HfN/interfacial layer , without surface nitridation, so good channel mobility and low interface trap density have been achieved. When using surface nitridation, EOT is further reduced to 0.6nm.

 

Our research team have close collaboration with other professors within the Silicon Nano Device Lab  (SNDL), ( see SNDL web : http://www.ece.nus.edu.sg/sndl/ ) focusing on the research of high-k high density Metal-Insulator-Metal (MIM) capacitors, and its applications in Analog and RF Integrated circuits (Publications 19-24).

 

Nano CMOS device reliability Physics: When the CMOS device scaled to nano regime, the electric field in the device becomes very high.  A lot of reliability issues becomes crucial. The most serious problems are: (1). Bias Temperature Instability (BTI) due to charge trapping in the gate dielectric and the interface traps, giving rise the threshold voltage shift of the MOS transistors. We are the first to point out the importance of dynamic BTI effect in real transistor application , and the recovery of interface trap degradation in the passivation phase under dynamic stress (publications 26,30,36) . The dynamic BTI degradation is much lower than the static BTI due to passivation effect in the dynamic stress. (2). Gate dielectric integrity including breakdown, quasi-breakdown (soft-breakdown), and stress induced leakage current (SILC), particularly the new issues and new degradation mechanism in high-k dielectric/interfacial layers.  Our research is focused on the physical understanding of device reliability issues, and technical improvement by choosing new materials and technology and operation mode.  

 

 

Metal –Semiconductor Schottky contact and its application in CMOS transistors: Schottky contact has high potential in semiconductor devices , particularly its potential in nano CMOS transistors to replace conventional pn junction source and drain . The Schottky barrier Source/Drain Transistor (SSDT) architecture has been proposed to overcome the series resistance problem of ultra-shallow source/drain (s/d) junction of sub-50nm MOSFETs, due to the abrupt silicide/Si interface and low resistance of silicide. The barrier height of the Schottky junction should be as low as possible to obtain high driving current and to prevent two different slopes in the subthreshold region of the MOSFETs. SSDT is particularly attractive for metal gate/high-K gate stack as it avoids the use of high temperature annealing process required for implanted S/D, hence eliminating the thermal stability issues associated with high-K/metal gate stack. The most difficult problem of SSDT is to make n-MOSFET with good performance comparable to the conventional n-MOSFET  performance . The key is to reduce the electron barrier of the Schottky contact . We have made some very encouraging progress by using Dy and Yb Silicide to improve the surface morphology and to reduce the electron barrier of the Schottky contact.( Publications 2,3 )

 

Quantum modeling and simulation of nano CMOS devices and  investigation of CMOS compatible emerging devices for the future integrated circuit applications :

 

When the CMOS device scaled down to the nano regime, quantum effects become very important.   Manifestation of quantum effects include: the carrier quantization effect due to quantum confinement in nano width channel in the inversion layer ( publications 48,54,56 )or ultrathin body (UTB) in Si-on-Insulator (SOI) ( Publications 44,45,46,51); quantum tunneling or resonant tunneling effect through the nano width barrier( Publications 47,49,52,53,55); inelastic tunneling and charge trapping with interaction with lattice phonon or lattice distortion ( publication 28) ; atomistic simulation, beyond the effective mass envelop function approximation for the band structure and carrier wave functions , for future nano devices, etc . We have a small however high quality team and we need students with strong background in Physics, with strong interests and enthusiasm, dedicating to longer-term research in future nano-CMOS devices.
