MBE Sulfur Passivation of InP for High Power Millimeter Wave Electronics
Agency / Branch:
DOD / USAF
High frequency power semiconductor devices based on metal insulator semiconductor field effect transistor (MISFET) structures have long been desired for microwave and millimeter wave (mm wave) applications. Unfortunately, complex interface defects and Fermi level pinning at the surface of both gallium arsenide (GaAs) and indium phosphide (InP) have impeded technology to control and stabilize MIS structures on these promising materials systems. SVT Associates proposes to develop under Phase I a method to form reproducible sulfur passivated MIS structures on InP with low interface state densities by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) of CdS films. Under Phase II, processes and hardware for sulfur passivation of high power mm wave InP MISFETs will be designed and tested.
