An 8-layer, 75 nm half-pitch, 3D stacked vertical-gate (VG) TFT BE-SONOS NAND Flash array is fabricated and characterized. We propose a buried-channel (n-type well) device to improve the read current of TFT NAND, and it also allows the junction-free structure which is particularly important for 3D stackable devices. Large self-boosting disturb-free memory window (6V) can be obtained in our device, and for the first time the “Z-interference” between adjacent vertical layers is studied. The proposed buried-channel VG NAND allows better X, Y pitch scaling and is a very attractive candidate for ultra high-density 3D stackable NAND Flash.
