Investigation of Scaling of InSb MOSFETs Through Drift–Diffusion Simulation
Models needed for drift–diffusion simulation of InSb MOSFETs in commercially available simulator are presented and applied to the problem of scaling of the exclusion/extraction InSb MOSFETs. Non-parabolicity, degeneracy, mobility and Auger recombination/generation are explained and modeled. Leakage current and maximum unity current gain frequency of the exclusion/extraction MOSFET are examined and its scaling properties down to 0.15 lm are analyzed. Because of its high mobility and saturation velocity, InSb shows promise as a material for THz active devices operating at very low voltages, despite its low bandgap and resulting leakage currents.
