    This paper presents a new method, developed for the capacitance–voltage (C–V) characterization of leaky dielectrics. The method comprises measurements in the gigahertz range on specially designed RF test structures. The method is verified against high-frequency C–V measurements on NMOS and PMOS structures. It yields reliable results even when the gate leakage is in excess of 100 A/cm2.
