The characteristics of $\hbox{Si}-{0.2}\hbox{Ge}-{0.8}$ channel PFETs fabricated directly on Si (110) surfaces have been investigated. The saturation drain current and the hole mobility of a Si0. 2Ge0. 8(110) PFET are enhanced by 70% and by 80% for the (110)channel, as compared with that of a bulk Si (110) PFET. For comparison with a Si (100) PFET, a SiGe (110)/(110) PFET has ∼200% hole mobility enhancement. The performance difference of the SiGe (110) / (110) and (100)/(110) PFT is about 2.7 times when considering mobility, and these effects are explained.
