Abstract
In this paper we study oxide deterioration caused by metal contamination using the Mercury-probe and the Surface Photovoltage techniques. It is found that deterioration caused by metal concentration as low as approximately equals 1010 cm-2 can be monitored performing stepped current measurements. This sensitivity makes the Mercury-probe technique attractive for fast-feedback evaluation of gate oxide integrity.
