|Title:||Reliability of Ultra-Thin Silicon Dioxide Under Substrate Hot-Electronic, Substrate Hot-Hole, and Tunneling Stress|
|Published:||November 01, 2001|
|Abstract:||Substrate hot-electron and substrate hot-hole injection experiments are used to provide insight into defect generation and breakdown of ultra-thin silicon dioxide under constant voltage tunneling stress. Results from substrate hot-electron injection confirm that energetic electrons are responsible for degradation and breakdown of ultra-thin silicon dioxide under tunneling stress conditions. Substrate hot-hole injection experiments suggest that mechanisms other than trapping of hotholes may be responsible for the breakdown ultra-thin silicon dioxide.|
