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.
