Abstract [en]

An enhancement of the electron mobility (mu) in InAlN/AlN/GaN heterostructures is demonstrated by the incorporation of a thin GaN interlayer (IL) between the InAlN and AlN. The introduction of a GaN IL increases mu at room temperature (RT) from 1600 to 1930 cm(2)/Vs. The effect is further enhanced at cryogenic temperature (5 K), where the GaN IL sample exhibits a mu of 16 000 cm(2)/Vs, compared to 6900cm(2)/Vs without IL. The results indicate the reduction of one or more scattering mechanisms normally present in InAlN/AlN/GaN heterostructures. We propose that the improvement in mu is either due to the suppression of fluctuations in the quantum well subband energies or to reduced Coulomb scattering, both related to compositional variations in the InAlN. HEMTs fabricated on the GaN IL sample demonstrate larger improvement in dc- and high-frequency performance at 5 K; f(max) increases by 25 GHz to 153 GHz, compared to an increase of 6 GHz to 133 GHz without IL. The difference in improvement was associated mainly with the drop in the access resistances.
