A novel δ-doped InGaP/InGaAs/AlGaAs tunneling real-space transfer high-electron mobility transistor (TRST-HEMT) has been successfully fabricated by low-pressure metal organic chemical vapor deposition (LP-MOCVD). Three-terminal N-shaped negative differential resistance (NDR) phenomenon due to the hot electrons real-space transfer (RST) at high electric field is observed. Two-terminal gate-to-drain breakdown voltage is more than 40 V with a leakage current as low as 0.27 mA/mm. High three-terminal on-state breakdown voltage as high as 19.2 V and broad plateau of current valley as high as 15 V are achieved. These characteristics are attributed to the use of high Schottky barrier height, high bandgap of InGaP Schottky layer, δ-doping, and GaAs subspacer layers. The measured maximum peak-to-valley ratio (PVR) value is 2.7.
