The dependence of electron mobility on strain, channel direction, and substrate orientation is theoretically studied for the germanium n-channel metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors. For the unstrained channel, (111) substrate can provide the highest mobility among the three orientations, mainly due to its largest quantization mass and smallest conductivity mass in L valley. The tensile strain parallel to the [(1) over bar 10] channel direction on (111) substrate gives 4.1 times mobility of Si at 1 MV/cm, and the mobility enhancement starts to saturate for the strain larger than 0.5%. The compressive strain of similar to 1.5% transverse to [(1) over bar 10] on (111) substrate yields 2.9 times mobility enhancement at 1 MV/cm. (c) 2007 American Institute of Physics.
