Abstract:The noise power spectra in ZnO nanowire field effect transistors (FETs) were experimentally investigated and showed a classical 1/f dependence. A Hooge's constant of 5 × 10−3 was estimated. This value is within the range reported for CMOS FETs with high-k dielectrics, supporting the concept that nanowires can be utilized for future beyond-CMOS electronic applications from the point of view of device noise properties. ZnO FETs measured in a dry O2 environment displayed elevated noise levels compared to in vacuum. At low temperature, random telegraph signals are observed in the drain current.
