ABSTRACT
Functional characteristics, comprising enhance-mode linear amplification performance and N-shaped negative-differential resistance phenomenon, have been observed in an inverted δ-doped In0.34Al0.66As0.85Sb0.15/In0.75Ga0.25As/InP high electron mobility transistor with the asymmetric source/drain terminal structure. Unpassivated peak performances, including the transconductance of 268 mS/mm and saturation drain current density of 210 mA/mm, and significant negative differential resistance characteristics, including the peak-to-valley current ratio of 6.1, can be obtained on the same device by switching the source/drain electrical connection. The electric field aspects of the asymmetry in the contacts have also been investigated.
