Performance Analysis of Strained Monolayer MoS$_{2}$ MOSFET    [PDF]

Amretashis Sengupta, Ram Krishna Ghosh, Santanu Mahapatra
We present a computational study on the impact of tensile/compressive uniaxial ($\varepsilon_{xx}$) and biaxial ($\varepsilon_{xx}=\varepsilon_{yy}$) strain on monolayer MoS$_{2}$ NMOS and PMOS FETs. The material properties like band structure, carrier effective mass and the multi-band Hamiltonian of the channel, are evaluated using the Density Functional Theory (DFT). Using these parameters, self-consistent Poisson-Schr\"{o}dinger solution under the Non-Equilibrium Green's Function (NEGF) formalism is carried out to simulate the MOS device characteristics. 1.75$%$ uniaxial tensile strain is found to provide a minor (6$%$) ON current improvement for the NMOSFET, whereas same amount of biaxial tensile strain is found to considerably improve the PMOSFET ON currents by 2-3 times. Compressive strain however degrades both NMOS and PMOS device performance. It is also observed that the improvement in PMOSFET can be attained only when the channel material becomes indirect-gap in nature. We further study the performance degradation in the quasi-ballistic long channel regime using a projected current method.
