Abstract: The electrical properties of metamorphic In(0.53)Ga(0.47)As metal-oxide-semiconductor capacitors with a 100-angstrom-thick ZrO(2) layer as high-k dielectrics were investigated. The In(0.53)Ga(0.47)As surface was pretreated by either sulfur passivation or HCl cleaning before the ZrO(2) deposition. Owing to the lower interface-state density after sulfidation, the sulfur-passivated capacitor exhibited better accumulation capacitance and strong inversion at capacitance-voltage measurement than the HCl-cleaned capacitor after post deposition annealing at 350 degrees C. On the basis of material analyses, the capacitors that subjected to underwent sulfur treatment were found to acquire a thin sulfur layer on the interface, which protects their surface from air exposure and prevents performance degradation.
