I thought a NMOS transistor has two n+ implants sitting in an p-well, while a NMOS accumulation capacitor has two n+ implants sitting in a n-well. I will appreciate any clarifications about the terms used.

Thickness and Width[edit]

Width usually indicates a horizontal dimension. In the illustration [1], one sees that the depletion zone has both (horizontal) width and (vertical) thickness. Using width to describe the vertical dimension can be confusing to those not familiar with the artful use of the term 'width' in the books. Using the word 'thickness' avoids that confusion by being consistent with the orientation of the illustrations [2] and [3]. 24.26.128.185 (talk) 04:36, 16 February 2008 (UTC)
