An inverted-type InAlAs/InAs metal-oxide-semiconductor high-electron-mobility transistor (MOS-HEMT) with liquid phase oxidized (LPO) InAlAs as the gate insulator is demonstrated. A thin InAs layer is inserted in the sub-channel layers of InGaAs to enhance the device performance. The proposed inverted-type InAlAs/InAs MOS-HEMT exhibits an improved maximum drain current density, higher transconductance, lower leakage current density, suppressed noise figures, and enhanced associated gain compared to the conventional Schottky-gate HEMT. Employing LPO to generate MOS structure improves the surface states and enhances the energy barrier. These results reveal that the proposed inverted-type InAlAs/InAs MOS-HEMT can provide an alternative option for device applications.
