High-quality gate SiO2 for metal/oxide/semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs) could be deposited at as low as 300° C in remote plasma chemical vapor deposition (CVD) utilizing activated neutral oxygen species and SiH4. The interface between deposited SiO2 and Si was improved with the formation of thin SiO2 by low-temperature oxidation using activated neutral oxygen species just before film deposition. The resistivity and breakdown field were as high as 1016 Ω ·cm and 10 MV/cm, respectively, equivalent to those of thermal SiO2 grown at high temperatures. The achieved minimum interface state density was as low as 4×1010 cm-2 eV-1. Fabricated MOSFETs using single crystalline Si showed excellent performance, and an effective channel mobility of 135 cm2 V-1 s-1 for holes was obtained.
