High performance PMOSFETs with gate length as short as 18-nm are reported. A self-aligned double-gate MOSFET structure (FinFET) is used to suppress the short channel effect. A 45 nm gate-length PMOS FinEET has an I/sub dsat/ of 410 /spl mu/A//spl mu/m (or 820 /spl mu/A//spl mu/m depending on the definition of the width of a double-gate device) at Vd=Vg=1.2 V and Tox=2.5 nm. The quasi-planar nature of this variant of the double-gate MOSFETs makes device fabrication relatively easy using the conventional planar MOSFET process technologies. Simulation shows possible scaling to 10-nm gate length.
