Abstract

2-D transient simulations of GaN MESFETs and AlGaN/GaN HEMTs are performed in which a deep donor and a deep acceptor are considered in a buffer layer. It is studied how the existence of field plate affects bufferrelated lag phenomena and current collapse. It is shown that in both FETs, the drain lag and current collapse could be reduced by introducing a field plate, because electron trapping in the buffer layer is weakened by it. The dependence on insulator-thickness under the field plate is also studied, suggesting that there is an optimum thickness of insulator to minimize the current collapse.
