摘要: A selective wet etch process for the gate recess of the GaAs power pseudomorphic high-electron-mobility transistors (pHEMT's) was developed. The power pHEMT's used in this study were epitaxially grown power Al0.2Ga0.8As/In0.2Ga0.8As pHEMT's with a 250 Angstrom GaAs cap layer and a 300 Angstrom Al0.2Ga0.8As electron-donating layer. The electron-donating layer was used as the etch-stop layer for the gate recess. A selectivity of 3400 : 1 was achieved for GaAs/Al0.2Ga0.8As layers using citric acid/tripotassium citrate/hydrogen peroxide etching solutions in this study. This is the highest selectivity for GaAs/AlxGa1-xAs selective etching reported so far. The pHEMT's processed using this selective etching demonstrated good device power performance, and the wet recess process did not cause any contamination or damage to the device. The test data indicates that this selective etch process can be of practical use for forming the gate recess of the power pHEMT's with good device performance and excellent electrical uniformity.
