High electron mobility and low sheet resistance were achieved in lattice-matched AlInN/AlN/GaN/AlN/GaN double-channel (DC) heterostructure. Two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) of the DC heterostructure was divided into the double channels and the room-temperature mobility was increased to 1430 cm2/V s by reducing the 2DEG density in each channel, compared with low electron mobility (1090 cm2/V s) for lattice-matched AlInN/AlN/GaN single-channel heterostructure. It was found that the 2DEG mobility was limited by thickness of the AlN interlayer between the double channels. After the structure optimization, the room temperature electron mobility of the DC heterostructure reached 1570 cm2/V s with sheet resistance of 222 Ω/□.

    An alternative approach is presented for the plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy of high-quality GaN. Under N-rich growth conditions, an unexpected layer-by-layer growth mode was found for a wide range of growth temperatures in the GaN thermal decomposition regime (>750 °C). Consequently,...

    The drain delay in AlGaN/GaN submicron high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) accounts for almost 25% of the total electron delay. This long delay significantly limits the maximum frequency performance and linearity of these devices. This paper studies the origin of this important delay...
