Term (Index) Definition
TeraHertz Transistor  transistor operating in the e12 Hz (1,000 GHz) frequency range; uses SOI substrate (DST), high-k gate dielectric and raised source and drain.
raised source-drain  feature of the advanced CMOS/MOSFET design; source and drain regions are raised (additional layer of Si is deposited epitaxially)with respect to the plane of the gate oxide-Si substrate interface to improve device performance.
DST, Depleted Substrate Transistor  Depleted Substrate Transistor represents a new generation of MOSFETs built into the SOI substrate in such way that its active Si layer between source and drain is fully depleted creating high conductivity channel; elimination of junction capacitances results in the device featuring superior characteristics.
