Fabrication of p-type silicon nanowires for 3D FETs using focused ion beam

A Ga+ focused ion beam (GaFIB) from a FIB/scanning electron microscopy (SEM) dual beam system was used for Si milling and p-type local doping of p+-type silicon nanowires (p+-SiNWs). The resulting p+-SiNWs were then used to create pMOS junctionless nanowire transistor (JNT) prototypes for silicon-on-insulator wafer substrates. The electron beam from the FIB/SEM dual beam system was used to deposit SiO2 gate dielectric and Pt source/drain electrodes for JNT transistors. Width, length, and height dimensions of p+-SiNWs were approximately 35 nm, 6 μm, and 15 nm, respectively, and the JNT gate length was 1 μm. Finally, photolithography, Al sputtering deposition, and lift-off processing were conducted to define the Al gate electrode and contacts on Pt source/drain electrodes. Energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy measurements were taken to confirm the surface composition of p+-SiNWs and Ga doping. Drain–source current (IDS) versus drain–source voltage (VDS) measurements of JNT transistors indicated that the device is working like a JNT device (gated resistor). The authors noted high resistance on Al/Pt source and drain electrodes, which leads to distortions on IDS versus VDS curves as non-ohmic electrical contact for low VDS signal. However, these distortions can be reduced with a longer contact sintering process or by increased p+-SiNW doping. Our conclusions indicate that utilizing a GaFIB/SEM dual beam system for Si milling, Ga doping, and SiO2 and Pt depositions can be a favorable alternative for fabricating junctionless devices based on p+-SiNWs.
