High-Κ dielectrics and device reliability

M. N. Bhuyian, D. Misra

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Technology scaling continues to be driven by the cost per function due to proliferation of mobile computing. With sub-45-nm technology node, high-Κ gate dielectrics such as HfO2 have emerged. This chapter is dedicated to high-Κ dielectrics with particular emphasis to most important characteristics the reliability.
