Electronic structure of silicon nitride


Rzhanov Institute of Semiconductor Physics, Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, prosp. Akad. Lavrenteva 13, Novosibirsk, 630090, Russian Federation

Amorphous oxide SiO2, oxynitride SiOxNy, and silicon nitride Si3N4 are the three key dielectric materials of silicon device technology. Silicon nitride is currently finding use in a variety of applications, in particular, as a storage medium in next-generation flash memory devices. Varying the chemical composition of nonstoichiometric silicon-rich SiNx allows a wide-range control of its optical and electrical properties. In this review, an analysis of the electronic structure of silicon nitride of varying composition is presented.
