Abstract This paper presents the characterization
of illuminated high-frequency activedevices using a time -
domain physical simulationmodel. The model is based on
Boltztnann's Transport Equation (BTE), which accurately
accounts for carrier transport in microwave and millimeter
wave devices with sub-micrometer gate lengths.
Illumination effects are accommodated in the model to
represent camer density changes inside the illuminated
device. The simulation results are compared to available
experimental records for a typical MESFET for validation
purposes. The calculated y-parameters of the device show
the profound effect of illumination on the microwave
characteristics. These findmgs make the model an
