|Abstract:||We have studied the dependence of breakdown field in nitrided oxides on nitridation conditions. Nitridation improves the breakdown field of the oxides. In an attempt to explore the cause of the improved breakdown, the breakdown field was related with electron-trap density and refractive index (which increases with nitrogen concentration in the oxide). Our results suggest that the enhanced breakdown field of nitrided oxides is mainly due to incorporation of nitrogen, which results in structural changes in the nitrided oxide.|
