In this paper, a numerically comprehensive investigation have been performed in order to propose a high-κ spacer triple-gate junctionless FinFET (HKS TG JL FinFET) in three dimensional (3D) simulation domain. In the proposed structure, a high dielectric insulator called as HfO2 is used on the both sides of the source and the drain regions as the spacers. The spacer located on the drain side, extends into the channel region and the other spacer is only on the channel region. Mode Space Non-Equilibrium Green’s Function method has been utilized in order to analyze the nanoscale proposed structure. The modification of the electric field along the channel region is introduced as the main reason for the improvement of the electrical characteristics. Also, the explored results about role of different thicknesses of the proposed structure spacers on the electrical performance are discussed in the last section. The explored results have revealed that the leakage current is successfully reduced about 20% and also Ion/Ioff experiences a 30% increase for the proposed structure. Also, the short channel effects in terms of subthreshod slope and drain induced barrier lowering (DIBL) is improved about 11.59% and 50% respectively. It is stated that the HKS JL TG FinFET can be a good candidate for future high speed applications.
