A field effect mobility of 125 cm2/V·s and a subthreshold slope of 130 mV/dec were obtained in enhancement mode 4H-SiC MOSFETs with a channel length of 2 µm. The fabricated devices utilised a gate stack comprising a 0.7 nm thin thermal SiO2, thereby reducing defects following oxidation, and a 40 nm thick Al2O3 formed by atomic layer deposition. A high mobility was maintained over a wide gate voltage range and resulted in increases of up to 120x in drain current for the same gate overdrive voltage compared to MOSFETs having a thicker thermal SiO2 gate stack with the same effective oxide thickness fabricated alongside.Nitridation is not included in either MOSFET process.
