A New Dual-Material Double-Gate (DMDG) Nanoscale SOI MOSFET – Two-dimensional Analytical Modeling and Simulation

In this paper, we present the unique features exhibited by a modified  asymmetrical double-gate (DG) silicon-on-insulator (SOI) MOSFET. The  proposed structure is similar to that of the asymmetrical DG SOI  MOSFET with the exception that the front gate consists of two materials.  The resulting modified structure, i.e., a dual-material double-gate  (DMDG) SOI MOSFET, exhibits significantly reduced short-channel  effects (SCEs) when compared with the DG SOI MOSFET. SCEs in this  structure have been studied by developing an analytical model. The  model includes the calculation of the surface potential, electric field, threshold voltage, and drain-induced barrier lowering. A model for the  drain current, transconductance, drain conductance, and voltage gain is  also discussed. It is seen that SCEs in this structure are suppressed  because of the perceivable step in the surface-potential profile, which  screens the drain potential. We further demonstrate that the proposed  DMDG structure provides a simultaneous increase in the transconductance and a decrease in the drain conductance when  compared with the DG structure. The results predicted by the model are  compared with those obtained by two-dimensional simulation to verify the  accuracy of the proposed analytical model.
Index Terms—Double gate (DG), drain-induced barrier lowering (DIBL), dual-material gate (DMG), IV model, silicon-on-insulator (SOI) MOSFET, two-dimensional (2-D) modeling.
