Abstract

Traps are identified in AlGaN-GaN HEMTs by means of different characterization techniques and the associated physical behavior is interpreted with the aid of numerical device simulations. It is in particular been shown that, under specific bias conditions, buffer traps can produce the same type of current-mode DLTS (I-DLTS), ICTS, and gm-dispersion signals that are generally attributed to surface traps. Clarifying this fact is crucial for both reliability testing and device optimization, as it can completely hinder a correct identification of degradation mechanisms.
