Abstract: The physical influence of temperature down to the cryogenic regime is analyzed in a comprehensive study and the comparison of IV and III-V Schottky barrier (SB) double-gate MOSFETs. The exploration is done using the Synopsys TCAD Sentaurus device simulator and first benchmarked with experimental data. The important device physics of both SB-MOSFETs and conventional MOSFETs are reviewed. The impact of temperature on device performance down to the liquid-nitrogen regime is then explored. We find reduced drive currents in SB-MOSFETs fabricated on small effective mass materials and that SB lowering can significantly improve SB-MOSFETs, especially at low temperatures [read more...]
