Abstract

The flatband voltage stability of Si O2 SiC metal-oxide-semiconductor capacitors upon electron injection can be enhanced by the introduction of nitrogen in a thermal gate oxide. We show that it is due to the suppression of negative charge buildup in interface states during injection. We discuss the role of nitrogen in this effect and how it might be linked to the passivation of interface defects.
