Abstract

We used far-infrared transmission spectroscopy to probe the electrostatically induced charge carriers in a ZnO field-effect transistor. The carrier absorption spectrum exhibits a non-Drude, incoherent conduction behavior at low gate-source voltages (VGS <40 V), which evolves toward a standard Drude behavior as VGS is increased. This change is explained successfully by a generalized Drude model. We find that the interface carriers undergo strong backscattering collisions during the channel conduction and the microscopic scattering angle changes with VGS.
