With the advancement of MOSFET technology, the control of the charges in the channel region becomes increasingly difficult and complex. The multi-gates SOI MOSFETs (Silicon-On-Insulator), also known as FinFET transistors, appear as an alternative to planar ones because of their better electrostatic coupling between gate and channel, which results in higher immunity to short-channel effects. One of the important applications of advanced integrated circuits is their use in equipment and circuits submitted to a radiation environment for medical and aerospace applications. In this project will be carried out the theoretical and experimental study of the FinFETs transistors submitted to radiation. (AU)
