Sheet carrier concentration and low-field drift mobility of intentionally undoped and modulation-doped AlGaN/GaN heterostructures on SiC substrate were evaluated by capacitance-voltage and channel conductivity measurements. Sheet carrier concentration and average mobility at 0 V gate bias correspond to standard Hall results. Sheet carrier density increases from 6.8×1012 cm-2 for the undoped sample up to 1×1013 cm-2 for the device with the highest doping concentration, while the mobility decreases from 1800 to 1620 cm2/V s. The local mobility, on the other hand, depends only on the actual sheet carrier density and is not influenced by the doping concentration of the carrier supply layer. It reaches a maximum value of 2100 cm2/V s at a carrier density of 3×1012 cm-2. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
