It is the intent of this work to investigate the physics and device applications of silicon nanocrystals embedded in dielectric film. Silicon nanocrystals embedded in Si02 film have been synthesized using ion-implantation. Metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect-transistors (MOSFET) embedded with silicon nanocrystal as charge storage node has also been fabricated. The electrical characteristics of the structure are obtained using the conventional current-voltage (I-V) and capacitance-voltage (C-V) techniques. To identify the size of the silicon nanocrystal, X-ray Diffraction (XRD) and cross-section Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) measurements have been conducted.
