Gate dielectric

gate dielectric material, gate dielectric
A gate dielectric is a dielectric used between the gate and substrate of a field-effect transistor In state-of-the-art processes, the gate dielectric is subject to many constraints, including:

  • Electrically clean interface to the substrate low density of quantum states for electrons
  • High capacitance, to increase the FET transconductance
  • High thickness, to avoid dielectric breakdown and leakage by quantum tunneling

The capacitance and thickness constraints are almost directly opposed to each other For silicon-substrate FETs, the gate dielectric is almost always silicon dioxide called "gate oxide", since thermal oxide has a very clean interface However, the semiconductor industry is interested in finding alternative materials with higher dielectric constants, which would allow higher capacitance with the same thickness
