  • A single-step doping method to fabricate n- and p-type multilayer graphene (MG) top-gate field effect transistors (GFETs) is demonstrated. The transistors are fabricated on soda-lime glass substrates, with the n-type doping of MG caused by the sodium in the substrate without the addition of external chemicals. Placing a hydrogen silsesquioxane (HSQ) barrier layer between the MG and the substrate blocks the n-doping, resulting in p-type doping of the MG above regions patterned with HSQ. The HSQ is deposited in a single fabrication step using electron beam lithography, allowing the patterning of arbitrary sub-micron spatial patterns of n- and p-type doping.more » When a MG channel is deposited partially on the barrier and partially on the glass substrate, a p-type and n-type doping profile is created, which is used for fabricating complementary transistors pairs. Unlike chemically doped GFETs in which the external dopants are typically introduced from the top, these substrate doped GFETs allow for a top gate which gives a stronger electrostatic coupling to the channel, reducing the operating gate bias. Overall, this method enables scalable fabrication of n- and p-type complementary top-gated GFETs with high spatial resolution for graphene microelectronic applications.« less
  • Highly nitrogen-doped GO (NGO) and n-type graphene field effect transistor (FET) have been achieved by simple irradiation of graphene oxide (GO) thin films in NH{sub 3} atmosphere. The electrical properties of the NGO film were performed on electric field effect measurements, and it displays an n-type FET behavior with a charge neutral point (Dirac point) located at around −8 V. It is suggested that the amino-like nitrogen (N-A) mainly contributes to the n-type behavior. Furthermore, compared to the GO film irradiated in Ar atmosphere, the NGO film is much more capable to improve the electrical conductivity. It may attribute to nitrogenmore » doping and oxygen reduction, both of which can effectively enhance the electrical conductivity.« less
  • A breakthrough in the complementary thin-film transistor technology allows the production of voltage level shifters that raise a 5-V input span to an 80-V output span. The static and dynamic behavior of these level shifters is discussed. The present technology is applicable for the integration of driver circuits on the substrate of electroluminescent displays.
  • p-n junctions formed by selective regrowth of n-(Al)GaN on p-GaN were characterized by I-V measurements and secondary-ion-mass spectrometry (SIMS). Regrown p-n diodes of high quality with low leakage currents were achieved, comparable to as-grown GaN p-n diodes, by optimizing the regrowth conditions and structures. SIMS revealed a sharp Mg profile at the regrowth interface. It confirms that these regrown structures are suitable to serve as emitter-base junctions for GaN-based bipolar transistors. This study offers us insight into analyzing n-p-n GaN homojunction bipolar transistors with a current gain of 10 and Al{sub 0.05}GaN/GaN heterojunction bipolar transistors with a current gain ofmore » 20, demonstrated using emitter regrowth technique.« less
