Full-range electrical characteristics of WS2 transistors

View publication

Abstract

We fabricated transistors formed by few layers to bulk single crystal WS2 to quantify the factors governing charge transport. We established a capacitor network to analyze the full-range electrical characteristics of the channel, highlighting the role of quantum capacitance and interface trap density. We find that the transfer characteristics are mainly determined by the interplay between quantum and oxide capacitances. In the OFF-state, the interface trap density (<1012?cm-2) is a limiting factor for the subthreshold swing. Furthermore, the superior crystalline quality and the low interface trap density enabled the subthreshold swing to approach the theoretical limit on a back-gated device on SiO2/Si substrate.
