The operation of a silicon on insulator (SOI) metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) was investigated in the presence of an electrically floating gate. The floating gate enhanced the emitter injection efficiency by depleting the channel region of its majority carriers. The device technology was found to be compatible with complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology and hence the effect is useful in integration of image sensing devices on SOI technology.
