Unformatted text preview: 6.720J/3.43J - Integrated Microelectronic Devices - Spring 2007 Lecture 24-1 Lecture 24 - The Si surface and the Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Structure (cont.) The Long Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor April 6, 2007 Contents: 1. Dynamics of the MOS structure (cont.) 2. Three-terminal MOS structure 3. Introduction to MOSFET Reading assignment: del Alamo, Ch. 8, 8.5-8.6; Ch. 9, 9.1 Cite as: Jess del Alamo, course materials for 6.720J Integrated Microelectronic Devices, Spring 2007. MIT OpenCourseWare (http://ocw.mit.edu/), Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Downloaded on [DD Month YYYY]. 6.720J/3.43J - Integrated Microelectronic Devices - Spring 2007 Lecture 24-2 Key questions What happens to the C-V characteristics of a MOS structure if the bias is switched abruptly? What happens to the electrostatics of the MOS structure if we contact the inversion layer and we apply a bias to it? How does a MOSFET look like and how does it work (roughly)?
