The metallization method of the invention uses an oxide-forming metal layer to improve adhesion and getter surface contamination or oxides. A high work function metal is then formed on the oxide-forming layer. An anneal is conducted to diffuse the high work function on metal through the oxide-forming layer. One or more metal cap layers may top the high work function metal to protect the high work function metal.
