Abstract

Effects of interfacial layer on the electrical properties of TiO 2 based dielectric thin films prepared by atomic layer deposition are investigated. It was confirmed from XPS data that the Hf-silicate and La-silicate interfacial layers including SiO x were formed in the interface of the HfO 2/TiO 2/Al 2O 3 (HTA) and La 2O 3/TiO 2/Al 2O 3 (LTA) gate stack structures, respectively. In addition, the dielectric constants and leakage currents of HTA and LTA structures were affected by the formation of Hf-silicate and La-silicate layer in the interface and crystallization of TiO 2 thin film, respectively. It was also found that the LTA thin film annealed at 600°C showed the low equivalent oxide thickness of 0.91 nm and the low leakage current of 4.16×10 -6 A/cm 2 at 4 MV/cm.
