    Nonalloyed Ohmic contacts on Ga-face n+-GaN/AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistor (HEMT) structures typically have significant contact resistance to the two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) due to the AlGaN barrier. By growing the HEMT structure inverted on the N-face, electrons from the...

    Conductivity oscillation due to quantum interference is theoretically studied in a proposed wash-board transistor. The transistor has a two-dimensional electron gas modulated by a weak periodic potential, and its gate voltage can change the Fermi energy. The periodic potential is approximated by...
