ABSTRACT
GaInP/GaAs/GaInP double heterojunction bipolar transistors have been fabricated for the study of electron saturation velocity (v[sub sat]) in GaInP. The necessary composite design at the base-collector junction, which effectively reduces the conduction band spike and avoids the premature Kirk effect, enables us to use the Kirk effect to study v[sub sat]. The deduced electron saturation velocity in GaInP is ∼5x10[sup 6] cm/sec. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
