Abstract: This paper represents a partial gate all around cylindrical tunnel FET. In this device gate is applied over half of the channel and the entire source and hetero-gate dielectric is used. A compact electrostatic model for potential of the proposed device is formulated using central difference technique considering 16×16 matrix. Optimization has been done for various gate materials since electrical parameters like OFF current, ON current, threshold voltage, vertical electric field are strong function of gate work function. Furthermore, the proposed device is also compared with cuboidal partially gate-all-around 3D structure for gate oxide scaling. The results of the potential model show good agreement with the simulated data obtained from TCAD simulation.
