Abstract

We report In0.52Al0.48As/In0.7Ga0.3As/In0.52Al0.48As single-quantum-well metal-insulator-semiconductor field-effect transistors (MISFETs) with a selective source/drain regrowth process. Long-channel InGaAs MISFETs yielded a subthreshold swing (S) of 61 mV/decade at VDS = 0.05 V and room temperature, and displayed very little frequency dispersion behavior in capacitance-voltage (CV) characteristics in both the strong-inversion and weak-inversion regimes. Both the S and CV results reflect the excellent interface quality between a molecular beam epitaxy-grown InAlAs insulator and an InGaAs channel. The devices showed as little as 0.8% per decade of frequency dispersion at the maximum gate capacitance in the strong-inversion regime. Moreover, the fabricated devices yielded an effective mobility (μ n-eff) of 11 900 cm2 V-1 • s-1 at room temperature, and degradation of μ n-eff with V GS in the strong-inversion regime was negligible. These results are a consequence of the small interfacial state density and the smooth surface morphology at the interface.
