Abstract

Based on a consideration of the relative magnitudes of the direct and trap-assisted tunneling probabilities, this work explains why stress-induced leakage current is observed only within a 'window' of oxide thickness. This work also provides further experimental evidence that SILC is due to inelastic trap-assisted tunneling of electrons from the cathode conduction band.
