Method and structure for forming junctionless FET with well -controlled channel thickness
A junctionless Field Effect Transistor (FET) is touted as a viable device option for future Complimentary Metal-Oxide Semiconductors (CMOSs) due to the potential lower source/drain (S/D) resistance (junctionless).

A problem with junctionless FET is the electrostatics control.

The novel contribution is a method and structure for forming junctionless FET with a precisely controlled channel thickness.

The process is illustrated in the following figures.

This process enables precise channel thickness control (predetermined by the original ETSOI thickness).
