Abstract

A drastic reduction in the growth temperature (400°C) of highly reliable SiO2 gate oxides grown by a Kr/O2 microwave-excited high-density plasma technique is shown to yield MOS I-V characteristics comparable to those obtained in transistors with conventionally grown dry gate oxides at 900°C. The benefits of this technique are summarized.
