In this paper we studied program/erase characteristics by FN tunneling in Si nanocrystal memories. Starting from a very good agreement between experimental data and simulations in the case of a memory cell with a thin tunnel oxide, Silicon dots as medium for charge storage, and a CVD silicon dioxide used as control dielectric, we present estimated values of the charge trapping when a high-k material is present in the control dielectric. We then show preliminary results of nanocrystal memories with control dielectric containing high-k materials. ©2004 IEEE.
