Effective work function (φ{symbol}m,eff) values of Hfx Ru1-x alloy gate electrodes on SiO2 metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) capacitors were carefully examined to assess whether the φ{symbol}m,eff was determined by the crystalline structure or the composition of the HfxRu1-x alloy. X-ray diffraction results indicated that the crystalline structures of HfxRu1-x alloy were divided into hexagonal-Ru, cubic-HfRu or hexagonal-Hf with the increase of Hf content. The φ{symbol}m,eff values could be controlled continuously from 4.6 to 4.0 eV by changing the Hf content. The experimental φ{symbol}m,eff value showed a good agreement with theoretical results considering the compositional ratio of pure Hf and Ru. These results suggest that the φ{symbol}m,eff of HfxRu1-x alloy gates on SiO2 MOS capacitors is dominantly determined by the HfxRu1-x composition rather than the crystalline structure.
