Abstract:

Iv data where I is the dc current and v is the maximum value of the ac applied voltage across the device was analyzed with respect to the theory and it was shown that the hole temperature not only depends on the substrate doping density and the electric field as measured by the Delta V subscript FB is not only a characteristic of the way that an oxide is grown and annealed, but it also depends on the quality of the substrate and its detailed thermal history. This substrate effect shows itself in the Iv characteristic of a particular device. If the dc current Idc was kept constant at a particular level as was the case for our experiments, then the v value would represent the temperature of the hot carriers. Since the evidence suggests that the hot carriers generate trap levels, then any change in carrier temperature would reflect in Delta V subscript FB. These substrate related effects were found to be significant.
