Electric Field Modulation by Introducing a Hk Dielectric Film of Tens of Nanometers in AlGaN/GaN HEMT
A novel high-k (hk) dielectric based structure for AlGaN/GaN HEMT is investigated by numerical method. The simulation results show that such a structure can significantly suppress the electric field peak in device due to the induced polarization charges at the hk dielectric-semiconductor interface. It is demonstrated that, for a typical AlGaN/GaN HEMT with gate–drain spacing of 3 μm, the utilization of the hk dielectric based structure makes the electric field peak value at channel reduced to 14.6% while V D = 200 V. This novel technology provides an alternative choice besides metal field plate to increase breakdown voltage.
