We have observed very large amplitude (≈ 90%) random telegraph signals (RTS) near the pinch-off voltage at very low temperature (1.5 K) in a very narrow, short channel n-MOSFET fabricated by a split-gate technique on an silicon on insulator (SOI) substrate. This large amplitude of RTS can be explained by numerical calculation which takes the potential of the charged trap into account.
