Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Advanced gate stacks with high dielectric constant materials (high-k) for complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) and memory applications in sub-22 nm feature size integrated circuits have been a subject of intense research in recent years. The main focus of the forthcoming special issue is to present a comprehensive overview to our readers by assembling state-of-the-art research articles and reviews on processing and characterization of high-k gate material. The topics covered by this special issue include high-k materials and deposition methods; Deposition on high-mobility substrate such as Ge, GaAs, and other III-V compounds; Interface passivation of substrate/high-k interface; Reliability of high-k material; Characterization techniques and Application to non-volatile memory systems.
