- RF and DC characterization of vertical InAs nanowire MOSFET on Si substrates are presented. Nanowire arrays are epitaxially integrated on Si substrates by use of a thin InAs buffer layer. For device fabrication, high-k HfO2 gate dielectric and wrap-gates are used. Post-deposition annealing of the high-k is evaluated by comparing one annealed and one not-annealed sample. The annealed sample show better DC characteristics in terms of transconductance, g(m) = 155 mS/mm, and on-current, I-on = 550 mA/mm. Box plots of on-current, on-resistance and transconductance for all 190-nanowire-array transistors on the annealed sample suggest that the electrical properties of the nanowires are preserved when scaling the nanowire diameter. Finally, high frequency characterisation yields a unity current gain cut-off frequency of f(t) = 9.3 GHz for the annealed sample and f(t) = 2.0 GHz for the not-annealed sample.
