In this paper, we have demonstrated that overlapping the gate on the drain can suppress the ambipolar conduction, which is an inherent property of a tunnel field effect transistor (TFET). Unlike in the conventional TFET where the gate controls the tunneling barrier width at both source-channel and channel-drain interfaces for different polarity of gate voltage, overlapping the gate on the drain limits the gate to control only the tunneling barrier width at the source-channel interface irrespective of the polarity of the gate voltage. As a result, the proposed overlapping gate-on-drain TFET exhibits suppressed ambipolar conduction even when the drain doping is as high as 1 ?? 1019 cm-3.
