Design Optimization of Nanoscale AlGaN/GaN HEMTs with Composite Metal Gate Structure for Millimeter-Wave Application
A structure of AlGaN/GaN HEMT with metal composite gate is proposed to suppress short channel effects in nanoscale gate HEMT devices. Composite metal gate is made of a series of metal with different work functions. Through two dimensional numerical simulation, by using this structure, the drain-induced barrier lowering effect (DIBL) can be effectively alleviated. Comparing with single metal gate (SMG), the magnitude of DIBL is decreased by 16.7% and 18.8% when employing composite dual metal gate (DMG) and composite triple metal gate (TMG) respectively. As a result, the electrical performance of the device such as maximum drain current, transconductance and cut-off frequency have been improved.
