heal.abstract During the last 2-3 years there has been an intensive research on InGaAs quantum well channels [1-4] as a possible alternative to the traditional Si-SiO2 FETs. Both Al2O3 [1-3] and HfO2 [4] are used as gate oxides. The fabricated devices with available current-voltage characteristics in the literature are of long gates. Typically the gate lengths Lg vary from 200 nm to 10 m. These devices however have to be scaled to the 20nm regime if they are to replace the Si-SiO2 system. A theoretical calculation tool that would show the trend from the micrometer values of Lg to the tenths of nm values would be valuable. In this paper we examine theoretically the Al2O3/InGaAs system with a variable gate length Lg. The gate metal is tungsten (W) as employed in the fabricated devices. We will see that it is a very good choice for having the threshold value VT near zero volts. Furthermore, in accordance with experiment, a cap layer of InAlAs-which also acts as a supply layer-is used so that finally our system consists of the layers: W/Al2O3/AlGaAs/InGaAs. This is shown in figure 1 together with the relevant lengths. © 2011 IEEE. en
