Modification of MOS Devices by High-Field Electron Injection and Arc Plasma Jet Treatment
Methods of modication of gate dielectrics of the MOS structures by high-field electron injection and arc plasma jet treatment were studied. It is possible to use them for correction of parameters, decreasing defects number and increasing reliability of MOS devices. It was found that the negative charge accumulated in the film of the phosphorus-silicate glass of the MOS structures with the two-layer gate dielectric SiO2phosphorus-silicate glass under the high-field electron injection can be used for modication of devices with the same structures. It is shown that the injection-thermal treatment allows to find and exclude MOS structures with defects of isolation and charge defects. Arc plasma jet treatment was found to improve characteristics of the MOS devices. These treatments increase injection and radiation resistance of the gate dielectric by creating the needed density of electron traps in the bulk of SiO2 film.
