  • Publication number: 20210296343
    Abstract: A semiconductor device and method of fabricating the same are disclosed. The method includes depositing a polysilicon gate layer over a gate dielectric formed over a surface of a substrate in a peripheral region, forming a dielectric layer over the polysilicon gate layer and depositing a height-enhancing (HE) film over the dielectric layer. The HE film, the dielectric layer, the polysilicon gate layer and the gate dielectric are then patterned for a high-voltage Field Effect Transistor (HVFET) gate to be formed in the peripheral region. A high energy implant is performed to form at least one lightly doped region in a source or drain region in the substrate adjacent to the HVFET gate. The HE film is then removed, and a low voltage (LV) logic FET formed on the substrate in the peripheral region. In one embodiment, the LV logic FET is a high-k metal-gate logic FET.

  • Patent number: 10895477
    Abstract: Optical polarization-based devices and techniques are provided to enable low cost construction and easy signal processing to measure the light frequency via measurements of signals associated with a delay between the two orthogonal polarizations after passing through a DGD element and the retardation value of the DGD element without directly measuring the optical frequency. The optical detection may be designed in various configurations. In particular, for example, the optical detection may split the optical output of the DGD into two optical beams with two different optical detectors so that the final frequency information can be deducted into a pair of sine and cosine functions, such as a pair of sine and cosine functions of measured optical signal levels and the retardation value of the DGD element.
