    • Abstract


      In this paper, we study the effects of short channel on double gate MOSFETs. We evaluate the variation of the threshold voltage, the subthreshold slope, the leakage current and the drain-induced barrier lowering when channel length $L_{\text{CH}}$ decreases. Further- more, quantum effects on the performance of DG-MOSFETs are addressed and discussed. We also study the influence of metal gate work function on the performance of nanoscale MOSFETs. We use a self-consistent Poisson–Schrödinger solver in two dimensions over the entire device. A good agreement with numerical simulation results is obtained.
