In this paper, we demonstrate InAs/GaSb hetero-junction (hetJ) and GaSb homo-junction (homJ) p-channel tunneling field effect transistors (pTFET) employing a low temperature atomic layer deposited high-kappa gate dielectric. HetJ pTFET exhibited drive current of 35 mu A/mu m in comparison to homJ pTFET, which exhibited drive current of 0.3 mu A/mu m at V-DS = -0.5V under DC biasing conditions. Additionally, with pulsing of 1 mu s gate voltage, hetJ pTFET exhibited enhanced drive current of 85 mu A/mu m at V-DS = -0.5 V, which is the highest reported in the category of III-V pTFET. Detailed device characterization was performed through analysis of the capacitance-voltage characteristics, pulsed current-voltage characteristics, and x-ray diffraction studies.
