Modeling Stressed MOS Oxides Using a Multiphonon-Assisted Quantum Approach—Part I: Impedance Analysis

Complementary MOS device electrical performances are considerably affected by the degradation of the oxide lay- ers and Si/SiO2 interfaces. A general expression for electrically stressed MOS impedance has been derived and applied within the nonradiative multiphonon theory of carrier capture/emission at oxide defects. The capacitance and the conductance of aged MOS field-effect transistor oxides, and their dependences on bias voltage, temperature, and stress conditions have been investigated.
