Si nanowire CMOS fabricated with minimal deviation from RMG FinFET technology showing record performance

View publication


We demonstrate a process flow for creating gate-all-around (GAA) Si nanowire (SiNW) MOSFETs with minimal deviation from conventional replacement metal gate (RMG) finFET technology as used in high-volume manufacturing. Using this technique, we demonstrate the highest DC performance shown for GAA SiNW MOSFETs at sub-100 nm gate pitch, and functional high-speed ring oscillators.
