The drain and gate voltage dependent channel transmission,T(VGS,VDS), plays a key role in determining the IVcharacteristics of nanoscale field-effect transistors. In this paper, we report measurements of T(VGS,VDS) for n-channel Extremely Thin Silicon-On-Insulator (ETSOI) MOSFETs with channel lengths from 30 to 980 nm. The results confirm previously given estimates of T for low and high drain bias. In addition, they also provide a complete description over the range of biases of interest. The results also show that for a given technology, the shape of T(VGS,VDS) is independent of the channel length.
