In this paper we report for the first time a mechanism whereby hetero-interface traps are generated by hot carriers in a SiGe/Si heterostructure. The trap density is estimated for SiGe-channel MOSFETs using a newly established elaborate low-temperature charge pumping technique. These results will enable a new level of improvements to the performance and reliability of strained-Si and SiGe devices.
