This is a dummy description. This is the first book to be published on physical principles, mathematical models, and practical simulation of GaN-based devices. Gallium nitride and its related compounds enable the fabrication of highly efficient light-emitting diodes and lasers for a broad spectrum of wavelengths, ranging from red through yellow and green to blue and ultraviolet. Since the breakthrough demonstration of blue laser diodes by Shuji Nakamura in , this field has experienced tremendous growth worldwide.
Various applications can be seen in our everyday life, from green traffic lights to full-color outdoor displays to high-definition DVD players. In recent years, nitride device modeling and simulation has gained importance and advanced software tools are emerging.
Similar developments occurred in the past with other semiconductors such as silicon, where computer simulation is now an integral part of device development and fabrication. This book presents a review of modern device concepts and models, written by leading researchers in the field. Resume : Carbon incorporation makes it difficult to realize a high-quality drift region for MOCVD GaN-based power Schottky diodes where high electron mobility at controllable low doping is desired, typically to carrier concentrations of less than 2E16 cm In this study, low Si-doped GaN layers were grown using growth conditions that yielded a high Ga supersaturation in order to reduce the carbon impurities.
Our thermodynamic Ga supersaturation model is able to accurately predict the concentration of C point defects. Even at a growth pressure of 20 Torr, the carbon level in the Si- doped layers to levels could be reduced below 1E16 cm-3 as determined by SIMS, while maintaining a growth rate of 1. A sharp decrease in mobility mobility collapse was observed for carrier concentrations below 1E16cm In order to further reduce the compensation level of free electrons to even lower values, above-bandgap illumination during growth was used for defect quasi-Fermi level control.
To further elaborate on the dependence of free electron mobility on compensation, results on low dislocation, low carbon, high mobility GaN films grown on ammonothermal GaN substrates will be discussed. Resume : Aluminium nitride is particularly interesting due to its unique properties such as a wide and direct band gap as well as high thermal conductivity.
The main goal of this work is to present the results of GaN growth on an AlN buffer layer. The deposition of AlN with a linear change of ammonia flux enables fast coalescence of the grown AlN epilayer and eliminates pits from the surface and prevents growth of nanocolumns. This solution allows one to deposit both thin AlN layers without pits and thick AlN without pits and cracks. X-ray diffractometry allowed the determination of important structural parameters such as the correlation lengths of columnar crystallites.
The etch pit density was examined by defect-selective etching of the GaN surface. It was observed that for AlN buffer layers with thickness below 0. Resume : High-quality freestanding GaN substrates are of significant importance for high-performance nitride-based devices. A number of researchers have investigated the origins of threading dislocations as well as techniques for suppressing them. However typical freestanding GaN substrates exhibit concave bowing and there are no reasonable models to explain the phenomenon of lattice bowing.
Samples analyzed in this work were typical HVPE-grown freestanding GaN substrates fabricated by thermal-stress induced separation. A radius of curvature and lattice constant of the top surface of freestanding GaN substrates were almost the same as those of the bottom surface. This was indicative of the complete relaxation of the GaN lattice, even though the substrate exhibited a curvature. We found from cross-sectional CL images that dislocations are present in a plane normal to the growth direction in addition to conventionally-known threading dislocations; these are referred to as the in-plane dislocations.
The in-plane dislocation had a a-type Burgers vector edge character , forming an extra-half plane under each dislocation line.

We proposed a model that the substrate bowing is caused by such extra-half planes. The density of the in-plane dislocation was good agreement with a value derived from our models. From these results, we concluded that the extra-half planes related to the in-plane dislocations are primarily responsible for the phenomenon of lattice bowing.
The developed and standardized processing technology was applied to GaN layers grown on SiC and Si substrates to allow a direct comparison of both, static and dynamic device parameters. Compensation doping of the buffer layers is mandatory for sufficient high-voltage isolation. Material impurities — on the other hand — generate dispersion effects that mitigate the transistor switching performance. The trade-off between breakdown strength and dispersion is studied for GaN-on-Si wafers from different vendors. However, no significant thermal effect was found for lower pulse powers as targeted for efficient power switching.
Resume : Energy conservation technologies for semiconductor devices have been required to realize a lower carbon society. Although much effort has been devoted to increase the conversion efficiency of electrical energy conversion systems using Si-based power semiconductor devices such as MOSFETs and IGBTs, the efficiency reaches the limitation determined by the material property of Si.
Oxide and Nitride Semiconductors
Wide bandgap semiconductor materials such as GaN and SiC have been researched to overcome the limitation. In particular, GaN is a promising material for high power and high frequency switching devices due to its higher breakdown field and smaller gate capacitance. The gate length of GIT is reduced down to 0. Recently, ammonothermal growth of high quality, truly bulk semi-insulating gallium nitride with threading dislocation density as low as 1x cm-2 and negligible bowwas developed. These advantages may lead to superior reliability and radiation hardness, as well as higher yield and repeatability of the final devices.

The RFmeasurements shows that for the devices with rectangular, 0. The insertion gain S21 attains 0 dB for frequency of 22 GHz. We expect that the RF parameters can be further enhanced by applying optimized gate design and length. Resume : With the emergence of novel high power applications such as the automotive market, the development of a new generation of power devices operating well above 1 kV with high efficiencies is needed.
Alternatives to existing Silicon Si technology have to be found since Si power devices are thermally limited and show high specific on-resistance at those operating voltages. However, this technology still suffers from the limitation of the silicon substrate since the breakdown occurs when the electric field reaches the silicon for large gate to drain spacing.
In order to overcome this limitation, we have developed a process in which the Si substrate is locally removed in the high electric field region. This allowed us to achieve state-of-the-art 3-terminal breakdown voltage GaN-on-Si transistors above V while delivering low specific on-resistance. These devices still shows lateral breakdown voltages well-above 2 kV at K. An integrated thermal management is being implemented allowing to maintain the outstanding breakdown voltage properties.
This is attributed to the control of device leakage current, material and processing quality and current collapse under high electric field in spite of the very close proximity of the surface charges and the 2DEG. In this presentation, an overview of the development of our technology for both high voltage and millimeter-wave applications will be depicted. Resume : We present an overview of some recent results concerning THz detection related to plasma nonlinearities in nanometer field effect transistors .
The subjects were selected in a way to show physics related limitations and advantages rather than purely technological or engineering improvements. In particular, nonlinearity and dynamic range of these detectors are discussed and two different technologies GaN and GaAs are compared.
