(FR) TRANSISTOR A HAUTE MOBILITE ELECTRONIQUE EN MODE ENRICHISSEMENT
Abstract
(EN) The invention relates to an enhancement-mode high-electron-mobility transistor comprising: • a structure (10) including a stack (1) made of III-V semiconductor materials defining an interface (2) and capable of forming a conduction layer (3) in the form of a two-dimensional electron-gas layer; • a source electrode (20) and a drain electrode (30) forming an electrical contact with the conduction layer (3); and • a gate electrode (40) arranged on top of the structure (10), between the source electrode (20) and the drain electrode (30). The structure (10) comprises a bar (4) that is arranged below the gate electrode (40) and passes through the interface (2) of the stack (1). Said bar (4) comprises two semiconductor portions exhibiting opposite types of doping, defining a p-n junction in proximity to the interface (2).
