A non-floating vertical transistor includes a substrate and a protuberant structure extending from the substrate. A segregating pillar is inside the protuberant structure. A pair of segregated bit-lines which are segregated by the segregating pillar is disposed in the substrate and in the protuberant structure and adjacent to the bottom of the segregating pillar. A gate oxide layer is attached to the sidewall of the protuberant structure. A word-line is adjacent to the gate oxide layer so that the gate oxide layer is sandwiched between the word-line and a doped deposition layer.

A PMOS field effect transistor includes a substrate, a first nitride layer, a mesa structure, two gate oxide films, a gate stack layer and a second nitride layer. The substrate has a oxide layer and a first doping area. The first nitride layer is located on the oxide layer. The mesa structure includes a first strained SiGe layer, an epitaxial Si layer and a second strained SiGe layer. The first strained SiGe layer is located on the oxide layer and the first nitride layer. The epitaxial Si layer is located on the first strained SiGe layer. The second strained SiGe layer is located on the epitaxial Si layer. In the surface layer of the second strained SiGe layer, there is a second doping area. The two gate oxide films are located at two sides of the mesa structure.

A method for fabricating a semiconductor memory includes the following steps. Active areas are defined in a substrate. An oxide layer is then formed on the active areas. The oxide layer is subjected to a surface treatment. A first polysilicon layer, a buffer layer and a hard mask are deposited. Recessed access devices are formed in an array region of the substrate. After the recessed access devices are formed, the hard mask and the buffer layer are removed to thereby form transistors in a peripheral region. A second polysilicon layer is deposited on the first polysilicon layer. The first and second polysilicon layers are then etched into a gate structure.
