  6. Evaluation of a “Field Cage” for Electric Field Control in GaN-Based HEMTs That Extends the Scalability of Breakdown Into the kV Regime

    A distributed impedance “field cage” structure is proposed and evaluated for electric field control in GaN-based, lateral high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) operating as kilovolt-range power devices. In this structure, a resistive voltage divider is used to control the electric field throughout the active region. The structure complements earlier proposals utilizing floating field plates that did not employ resistively connected elements. Transient results, not previously reported for field plate schemes using either floating or resistively connected field plates, are presented for ramps of dV ds /dt = 100 V/ns. For both DC and transient results, the voltage between the gatemore » and drain is laterally distributed, ensuring the electric field profile between the gate and drain remains below the critical breakdown field as the source-to-drain voltage is increased. Our scheme indicates promise for achieving breakdown voltage scalability to a few kV.« less

  8. High Temperature Operation of Al 0.45Ga 0.55N/Al 0.30Ga 0.70 N High Electron Mobility Transistors

    AlGaN-channel high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) are among a class of ultra wide-bandgap transistors that have a bandgap greater than ~3.4 eV, beyond that of GaN and SiC, and are promising candidates for RF and power applications. Long-channel Al xGa 1-xN HEMTs with x = 0.3 in the channel have been built and evaluated across the -50°C to +200°C temperature range. Room temperature drain current of 70 mA/mm, absent of gate leakage, and with a modest -1.3 V threshold voltage was measured. A very large I on/I off current ratio, greater than 10 8 was demonstrated over the entire temperaturemore » range, indicating that off-state leakage is below the measurement limit even at 200°C. Finally, combined with near ideal subthreshold slope factor that is just 1.3× higher than the theoretical limit across the temperature range, the excellent leakage properties are an attractive characteristic for high temperature operation.« less
  9. An AlN/Al{sub 0.85}Ga{sub 0.15}N high electron mobility transistor

    An AlN barrier high electron mobility transistor (HEMT) based on the AlN/Al{sub 0.85}Ga{sub 0.15}N heterostructure was grown, fabricated, and electrically characterized, thereby extending the range of Al composition and bandgap for AlGaN channel HEMTs. An etch and regrowth procedure was implemented for source and drain contact formation. A breakdown voltage of 810 V was achieved without a gate insulator or field plate. Excellent gate leakage characteristics enabled a high I{sub on}/I{sub off} current ratio greater than 10{sup 7} and an excellent subthreshold slope of 75 mV/decade. A large Schottky barrier height of 1.74 eV contributed to these results. The room temperature voltage-dependent 3-terminalmore » off-state drain current was adequately modeled with Frenkel-Poole emission.« less
