For the first time, high-resolution carrier imaging has been carried out on (110)/(100) pFETs and nFETs with scanning spreading resistance microscopy (SSRM). The S/D of (110) pFETs shows less lateral distribution than that of (100), strongly indicating 2D-channeling effect of boron I/I. Direct evidence has been shown that As out-diffusion under NiSi made conductive paths that degrade junction leakage on (110) nFETs. The Si:C influences on S/D profiles are also directly observed. We also succeeded in a full-FIB sample-making for the first time, showing the high potential of SSRM technology for further scaled devices.
