Investigations and growth of GaN-based field effect transistors
Transistors are currently installed in almost every electrical device. The trend of semiconductor development is towards ever faster switching times, ever higher performance and ever smaller component sizes. For example, in the charging control of electric cars, high power density transistors are needed, but at high powers, the losses of conventional two-dimensional transistors increase sharply. One possible approach is to spatially separate the source and drain contacts in a third dimension. This results in a vertical transistor, e.g. the CAVFET structure.
