Al2O3 deposited by Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) was used as the gate dielectric layer on the trench structure. The 3-D MOS capacitors exhibit increasing accumulation capacitance with excellent linearity as the sidewall area increases, indicating that ALD results in a highly conformal dielectric film. The capacitance – voltage characteristics also show evidence of a second flatband voltage, located at a higher bias than that seen for purely planar devices on the same sample. We also observe that the oxide capacitance of planar and 3-D MOS capacitors increases with temperature. Finally, we have found that the 3-D MOS capacitor has a weaker temperature dependence of flatband voltage in comparison to the conventional planar MOS capacitor due to the incorporation of the (Formula Presented) plane in the sidewall.
