Abstract:High-/metal gate (HKMG) is one of key technologies for sub-45-nm generations in nano-CMOS era [1-2]. However, using HKMG may introduce random work functions (WKs) on device’s metal gate due to various metal grain orientations [3-5]. In this study, based on experimentally calibrated 3D device simulation [7], WK fluctuation (WKF) of 16 nm TiN/HfO2 gate stack bulk FinFET devices is investigated. The effect of individual WKF in nanosized grain of metal gate on device’s characteristic are captured using localized WKF simulation technique [1], where the random position and number of nanosized metal grains are for the first time modeled and examined. Physical findings on WKF of HKMG devices are discussed accordingly
