We have used a simple process to fabricate Si/sub 0.3/Ge/sub 0.7//Si p-MOSFETs. The Si/sub 0.3/Ge/sub 0.7/ is formed using deposited Ge followed by 950/spl deg/C rapid thermal annealing and solid phase epitaxy that is process compatible with existing VLSI. A hole mobility of 250 cm/sup 2//Vs is obtained from the Si/sub 0.3/Ge/sub 0.7/ p-MOSFET that is /spl sim/two times higher than Si control devices and results in a consequent substantially higher current drive. The 228 /spl Aring/ Si/sub 0.3/Ge/sub 0.7/ thermal oxide grown at 1000/spl deg/C has a high breakdown field of 15 MV/cm, low interface trap density (D/sub it/) of 1.5/spl times/10/sup 11/ eV/sup -1/ cm/sup -2/, and low oxide charge of 7.2/spl times/10/sup 10/ cm/sup -2/. The source-drain junction leakage after implantation and 950/spl deg/C RTA is also comparable with the Si counterpart.
