    Hi Thickness has an important implication in UTB MOSFETS.

    Quantum confinement in UTB leads to higher threshold voltage which leads to smaller ON current. Also you can think reducing thickness reduces SCE leading to improved Subthreshold Slope & DIBL and reduced OFF current.

    thanks Saumitra
