Abstract: There has been much interest in the Si-based strained technology lately. The improvement of strained-Si device performance is due to the enhancement of the mobility, so the further study on mobility is essential in both theory and practice aspects. In this paper, an analytical model of the electron mobility of strained-Si material, such as biaxial tensile strained-Si material grown on relaxed Si1-xGex (0≤x≤0.6) substrates, as a function of strain and different orientations is obtained. The results show that the electron mobilities for [100] and [010] orientations increase rapidly with increasing Ge fraction x, and there is no electron mobility enhancement for [001] orientation in comparison to relaxed Si material.

Abstract: The intrinsic carrier concentration is the important parameter for researching strained Si1-xGex materials properties and evaluating Si-based strained devices parameters. In this paper, at the beginning of analyzing the band structure of strained Si1-xGex/(101)Si, the dependence of its effective densities of states for the conduction and valence bands (Nc, Nv) and its intrinsic carrier concentration (ni) on Ge fraction (x) and temperature were obtained. The results show that ni increases significantly due to the effect of strain in strained Si1-xGex/(101)Si. Furthermore, Nc and Nv decrease with increasing Ge fraction (x). In addition, it is also found that as the temperature becomes higher, the increase in Nc and Nv occurs. The results can provide valuable references to the understanding on the Si-based strained device physics and its design.

Abstract: Strained Si1-xGex technology has been widely adopted to enhance hole mobility. One of the most important physical parameters is density of state near the top of valence band in strained Si1-xGex materials. In this paper, we first obtained the hole effective mass along arbitrarily k wavevector directions, the hole isotropic effective masses and density of state effective mass of hole in strained Si1-xGex/(001)Si with the framework of K.P theory. And then, model of density of state near the top of valence band in strained Si1-xGex/(001)Si materials was established, which can provide valuable references to the understanding on its material physics and theoretical basis on the other important physical parameters.

Abstract: Based on Fermi's golden rule and the theory of Boltzmann collision term approximation, taking into account all the scattering mechanisms contributed by ionized impurity, acoustic phonon and intervalley phonon, the model of total scattering rate of strained Si/(100) Si1-xGex is established. Simulating of the scattering models with Matlab software, it was found that the total scattering rate of electron in strained Si/(100) Si1-xGex decreases obviously with the increasing stress when Ge fraction x is less than 0.2 and the values continue to show a constant tendency, and that the total electron scattering rate of strained Si/(100) Si1-xGex decreases about 57% at most comparison with one of unstrained Si. The result can provide valuable references to the research of electron mobility of strained Si materials and the design of NMOS devices.
