We analyze what is needed to design a low voltage high current tunneling field effect transistor (TFET). We consider the potential performance of changing the thickness of the tunneling barrier as well band edge energy filtering to achieve a steep turn on. We also consider the impact of dimensionality or shape on the turn on characteristics. Finally, we consider the gate efficiency of different TFET geometries.
