GaAs mHEMT epi wafer

GaAs mHEMT epi wafer

InGaAs/InAlAs heterostructure is realized on GaAs substrate. This GaAs-based metamorphic high electron mobility transistor (mHEMT) heterostructure can reduce the stress at the interface between heterostructure and GaAs through the gradual change of In composition. Such a mHEMT structure can provide device performance that is superior to GaAs-based pHEMT and close to InP-based HEMT, and can be integrated with GaAs-based circuits. PAM-XIAMEN can offer 4″GaAs mHEMT epi wafer (GaAs MBE epiwafer), please see below typical structures:

2. About mHEMT Device

MHEMT devices are developed from HEMT devices. From the structure of material layer, mHEMT device is to move InP based InAlAs/InGaAs heterostructures onto GaAs substrate, so that it not only has the advantages of high electron concentration, high mobility and high saturation speed of InP HEMT, but also gets rid of the disadvantages of high cost of InP substrate, low mechanical strength and friability when processing. It is the latest development direction of HEMT devices, and it has strong appeal in low noise high power applications.
