he Vertical Strained Silicon Germanium (SiGe) Impact Ionization MOSFET (VESIMOS) has been successfully developed and analyzed in this paper. VESIMOS device integrates vertical structure concept of Impact Ionization MOSFET (IMOS) and strained technology. The transfer characteristics of VESIMOS revealed an inverse proportionality of supply voltage, VD and sub-threshold, S due to lower breakdown strength of Ge content. However, the Sis in direct proportion to the leakage current. The S=10mV/dec was successfully obtained at threshold voltage, VT=0.9V, with VD=1.75V. This VT is 40% lower than VT for Si-vertical IMOS. The output characteristics goes into saturation for VD more than 2.5V, attributed to the presence of Ge that has high and symmetric impact ionization rates. Electron mobility wasimproved by 40% compared to Si-vertical IMOS and an increase in strain will also increase mobility and reduce further the VT. However, the increase in strain layer thickness, TSiGe, resulted in an increase of VT and lowered the mobility. This is due to the strain relaxation in the SiGe layer. Finally, at high source-drain doping concentration, S/D=2×1018/cm3, the VT dropped to 0.88V, with VD of 1.75V. This is due to high electric field effect in the channel at high doping concentration, which is contrary to the doping effects of conventional MOSFET.
