Effects of surface deep levels on breakdown characteristics of narrowly-recessed-gate GaAs MESFETs are studied by two-dimensional analysis. It is shown that the breakdown voltage could be raised when moderate densities of surface states are included. However, it is suggested that in a case with relatively high densities of surface states, the breakdown voltage could be drastically lowered by introducing a narrowly-recessed-gate structure.
