We present a first study of threshold voltage instabilities of semi-vertical GaN-on-Si trench-MOSFETs, based on double pulsed, threshold voltage transient, and UV-Assisted C-V analysis. Under positive gate stress, small negative V th shifts (low stress) and a positive V thshifts (high stress) are observed, ascribed to trapping within the insulator and at the metal/insulator interface. Trapping effects are eliminated through exposure to UV light; wavelength-dependent analysis extracts the threshold de-Trapping energy ≈2.95 eV. UV-Assisted CV measurements describe the distribution of states at the GaN/Al2O3 interface. The described methodology provides an understanding and assessment of trapping mechanisms in vertical GaN transistors.

Abstract

We present a first study of threshold voltage instabilities of semi-vertical GaN-on-Si trench-MOSFETs, based on double pulsed, threshold voltage transient, and UV-Assisted C-V analysis. Under positive gate stress, small negative V th shifts (low stress) and a positive V thshifts (high stress) are observed, ascribed to trapping within the insulator and at the metal/insulator interface. Trapping effects are eliminated through exposure to UV light; wavelength-dependent analysis extracts the threshold de-Trapping energy ≈2.95 eV. UV-Assisted CV measurements describe the distribution of states at the GaN/Al2O3 interface. The described methodology provides an understanding and assessment of trapping mechanisms in vertical GaN transistors.
