Solid-state incandescent light emitting devices made from MOS capacitors with the WOx embedded Zr-doped HfOx gate dielectric were characterized for electrical and optical characteristics. Devices made from capacitors containing Zr-doped HfOx and WOx, gate dielectrics were also fabricated for comparison. The device with the WOx embedded gate dielectric layer had electrical and light emitting characteristics between that with WOx gate dielectric layer and that with the Zr-doped HfOx but no WOx embedded gate dielectric layer. The difference can be explained by the nano-resistor formation process and the content of the high emissivity W in the nano-resistor. The device made from the WOx embedded Zr-doped HfOx gate dielectric MOS capacitor is applicable to areas where uniform emission of warm white light is required.
