We model and simulate novel fully depleted (FD) sub-50nm gate lengths MOSFET structures using a full-band particle simulator based on the Cellular Monte Carlo (CMC) method that provides an accurate transport model at the high electric fields present in these nanoscale devices. Simulations of Germanium- and Silicon-On-Insulator devices (GOI and SOI, respectively) are performed to quantitatively investigate the predicted increase of performance of GOI technology. A comparison of static and dynamic properties of similar GOI and SOI devices is performed for 50 nm and 35 nm gate lengths.
