We have studied the HfO 2/Hf and HfO 2/Pt systems by photoemission and inverse photoemission spectroscopies. It is found that the "effective workfunction" of metals in multilayer structures are different than their vacuum workfunctions and are modified by their interface dipoles at the metal/high-k interface. The effective workfunction of Hf is 4.4 eV whereas that of Pt is 5.3 eV, within the range of acceptable values for PMOS and NMOS respectively.
