The authors have developed short-channel strained-silicon-on-insulator (strained-SOI) MOSFETs on silicon-germanium (SiGe)-on-insulator (SGOI) substrates fabricated by the Ge condensation technique. 35-nm-gate-length strained-SOI MOSFETs were successfully fabricated. The strain in Si channel is still maintained for the gate length of 35 nm. The performance enhancement of over 15% was obtained in 70-nm-gate-length strained-SOI n-MOSFETs. Fully depleted strained-SOI MOSFETs with back gate were successfully fabricated on SGOI substrate with SiGe layers as thin as 25 nm. The back-gate bias control successfully operated and the higher current drive was obtained by a combination of the low doping channel and the back-gate control.
