Tags: MOS capacitors


The MOS capacitor consists of a Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor structure which has the semiconductor substrate with a thin oxide layer and a top metal contact, referred to as the gate. A second metal layer forms an Ohmic contact to the back of the semiconductor and is called the bulk contact.

  1. CV profile with different oxide thickness

    20 Apr 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Saumitra Raj Mehrotra, Gerhard Klimeck

    C-V (or capacitance-voltage) profiling refers to a technique used for the characterization of semiconductor materials and devices. C-V testing is often used during the characterization process to determine semiconductor parameters, particularly in MOSCAP and MOSFET structures.C-V measurements can...
