Field effect transistor having a stressed dielectric layer based on an enhanced device topography

Image Number 8 for United States Patent #7563731.

By increasing the transistor topography after forming a first layer of highly stressed dielectric material, additional stressed material may be added, thereby efficiently increasing the entire layer thickness of the stressed dielectric material. The corresponding increase of device topography may be accomplished on the basis of respective placeholder structures or dummy gates, wherein well-established gate patterning processes may be used or wherein nano-imprint techniques may be employed. Hence, in some illustrative embodiments, a significant increase of strain may be obtained on the basis of well-established process techniques.
