Abstract: Recessed-gate AlGaN/GaN metal-insulator-semiconductor (MIS) high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) were fabricated by utilizing a photoelectrochemical (PEC) etching and a post-metallization annealing (PMA) process. In order to demonstrate the device performance and reliability, both electrical and optical electroluminescence (EL) properties were evaluated. The capacitance-voltage (C-V) characteristic showed that the PEC etching and subsequent PMA process enhanced the gate control of two-dimensional electron gas density. The PEC-etched-gate AlGaN/GaN MIS-HEMT showed the smallest sub-threshold slope of all the samples including planar-gate and inductively coupled plasma-etchedgate devices. Furthermore, the PEC-etched devices showed an extremely low 10(-11) A mm(-1) gate leakage current with no spot-like EL. These results indicated that the PEC etching and subsequent PMA process improved the electrical properties of the Al2O3/AlGaN interface, resulting in enhanced device performance of the AlGaN/GaN MIS-HEMTs.
