  • Although gate stack structures with high-k materials have been extensively investigated, there are some issues to be solved for the formation of high quality gate stack structures. In the present study, we employed hard x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy in operating devices. This method allows us to investigate bias dependent electronic states, while keeping device structures intact. Using this method, we have investigated electronic states and potential distribution in gate metal/HfO{sub 2} gate stack structures under device operation. Analysis of the core levels shifts as a function of the bias voltage indicated that a potential drop occurred at the Pt/HfO{sub 2} interfacemore » for a Pt/HfO{sub 2} gate structure, while a potential gradient was not observed at the Ru/HfO{sub 2} interface for a Ru/HfO{sub 2} gate structure. Angle resolved photoelectron spectroscopy revealed that a thicker SiO{sub 2} layer was formed at the Pt/HfO{sub 2} interface, indicating that the origin of potential drop at Pt/HfO{sub 2} interface is formation of the thick SiO{sub 2} layer at the interface. The formation of the thick SiO{sub 2} layer at the metal/high-k interface might concern the Fermi level pinning, which is observed in metal/high-k gate stack structures.« less
  • The bunch rotation exchange of time for momentum spread in the Fermilab Antiproton Source is dependent upon proton bunch narrowing at 120 GeV in the Main Accelerator. The original procedure proposed to accomplish bunch narrowing involved adiabatic reduction of the Main Ring rf voltage (and bucket height) until the bunches span approximately + or -..pi../2 radians in the bucket, followed by a sudden increase in rf voltage causing bunch rotation within the now mismatched bucket and consequent bunch narrowing in time spread. This procedure suffers from several draw-backs. One fundamental problem is that during the adiabatic portion of the proceduremore » the bunches are caused to have a very low momentum spread and to remain in this condition for many phase oscillation periods. In this circumstance the bunches may be subject to microwave instability which would limit the momentum spread reduction and consequently the final bunch length. A second problem with the procedure is simply that it requires an inordinately long time and may at some point limit the cycle time and consequently the antiproton production rate. Thirdly, since antiprotons are produced by a single batch of 83 bunches occupying only 1/13 of the 1113 Main Ring buckets, the beam quality during the long counterphasing period may suffer from imprecise compensation for transient beam loading of the rf system. When the voltage has been reduced to the very low value required to match the elongated bunch configuration, about 4 kappaV, the beam induced voltage may be comparable to that required to create the buckets, compensation notwithstanding.« less
