The ECT is the only thickness that can be measured directly, by capacitance-voltage (CV) methods, so it is the relevant quantity. It is also called the inversion thickness, t inv . On the other hand, EOT can only be estimated by, for example, electron microscopy measurements of the high- K thickness, or by back-calculating from ECT Capacitance Thickness Gauging.

Capacitance. The amount of energy a capacitor can store depends on the value or CAPACITANCE of the capacitor. Capacitance (symbol C) is measured in the basic unit of the FARAD (symbol F). One Farad is the amount of capacitance that can store 1 Coulomb (6.24 x 10 18 electrons) when it is charged to a voltage of 1 volt. The Farad is much too. Capacitance Measurement Each Arduino capacitance meter relies on the same basic property of capacitors- the time constant. The time constant of a capacitor is defined as the time it takes for the voltage across the capacitor to reach 63.2% of its voltage when fully charged. Larger capacitors take longer to charge, and therefore have larger time constants. An Arduino can measure capacitance. When measuring a capacitor with a high capacitance of greater than 100μF (and therefore low impedance), low-impedance high-precision mode yields more stable measurement.
