The scaling behavior of current drive enhancements in strained-silicon NFETs on SiGe-on-insulator (SGOI) is reported. SGOI NFET enhancement exhibits only moderate channel length dependence down to sub-50 nm regime, indicating strain-induced enhancement can be sustained in future technology nodes. This is contrary to some previous reports which suggested dramatic reduction of strain-induced NFET current enhancement with channel length scaling. A novel analysis technique was developed to account for the difference in self-heating in SGOI and SOI devices to enable intrinsic device performance comparison. Additive effects of biaxial strain from the Si/SiGe heterostructure and process-induced uniaxial stress are experimentally demonstrated for the first time.
