    In this paper, high performance ALD HfO2-Al2O3laminate metal-insulator-metal (MIM) capacitor is demonstrated for the first time with high capacitance density of 12.8 fF/μm2from 10 kHz to 20 GHz, low leakage current of 7.45x10-9A/cm2@2V, low VCC (voltage coefficients of capacitance), and excellent reliability. The superior electrical properties and reliability suggest that the ALD HfO2-Al2O3laminate is a very promising material for MIM capacitors for Si RF and mixed signal IC applications.
