We demonstrated the integration of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) as the contact plug to the Si MOSFET. A Ti silicide contact layer was introduced between the CNTs and the Si. The open-ended CNT tip connected the metal one on the other end. We study the contact resistivity of the CNT contact plug using the cross-bridge Kelvin test structure, and compare with the W contact plug. The CNT contact plug also showed excellent thermal stability. The electrical and thermal behavior is closely related to the intermediate layer between the CNT and the Si.
