Analysis of Heat Dissipation in AlGaN/GaN HEMT with GaN Micropits at GaN-SiC Interface

Abstract Gallium Nitride (GaN) based microelectronics technology is a fast growing and most exciting semiconductor technology in the fields of high power and high frequency electronics. Excellent electrical properties of GaN such as high carrier concentration and high carrier motility makes GaN based high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) a preferred choice for RF applications. However, a very high temperature in the active region of the GaN HEMT leads to a significant degradation of the device performance by effecting carrier mobility and concentration. Thus, thermal management in GaN HEMT in an effective manner is key to this technology to reach its full potential.

In this thesis, an electro-thermal model of an AlGaN/GaN HEMT on a SiC substra... (more)
