Using a pulsed microwave source to provide a strong lateral electric field in a Si‐metal‐oxide‐semiconductor structure, we observe interface degradation by hot holes. Damage occurs in a two‐step process. Holes are trapped in the oxide at low temperature and are subsequently converted into interface states in an annealing step at room temperature.
