Electrical Properties of Metal-Oxide-Silicon Structures Wrm Sol-Gel Oxides

We have investigated the electronic properties of sol-gel derived films on silicon substrates. Our investigation involves SiO2, aluminosilicate and borosili cate oxides on silicon. Seme sol-gel oxides are excellait insulators; seme sol-gel films on silicon also exhibit quite low oxide/silicon interface trap densities. We have also subjected sol-gel films on silicon to 4 Mrad(SiO2) of radiation and have found that these structures appear to be radiation hard (very little radiation induced oxide space charge or interface trap generation). Our results strongly suggest that sol-gel processing could provide insulating films for a variety of microelectronic device applications.
