Abstract
We propose to carry out research and development of highly efficient broadband cryogenic switches using voltage controlled 2D electron gas in III-Nitride heterostructure field-effect transistors (HFETs). Unlike RF switches based on regular semiconductor devices, key characteristics of properly designed III-Nitride HFET - based RF switches will actually improve at cryogenic temperatures. These include insertion loss, maximum switching powers, switching times and others.
