    Abstract

    A semiclassical Monte Carlo simulation was run to estimate the performances of a monolayer and a bilayer (with vertical electric field of 1 V/nm applied) graphene-channel field-effect transistor (FET). The vertical field produces a band gap of 0.16eV and gives semiconductive properties in the bilayer graphene. Electrons in monolayer graphene show a notable velocity overshoot of up to 7.6 × 107 cm/s. A sub-0.1 ps transit time is also expected in a 65-nm channel device. The performance of a bilayer graphene-channel FET is inferior to a monolayer graphene one, but comparable with that of an InP high electron mobility transistor (HEMT). This lower performance may be attributed to the electron effective mass produced by the vertical field.
