We have investigated a Mo/Au gate scheme for use in AlGaN/GaN-on-Si HFETs. AlGaN/GaN-on-Si HFETs were fabricated with Ni/Au or Mo/Au gates and their electrical characteristics were compared after thermal stress tests. While insignificant difference was observed in DC characteristics, the Mo/Au gate device exhibited lower on-resistance with superior pulsed characteristics in comparison with the Ni/Au gate device.
