MOCVD-grown 0.25 μm gate-length AlGaN/GaN high electron mobility transistors (HEMTs) have been fabricated on 6H-SiC substrates. These 0.25 μm gate-length devices exhibited maximum drain current density as high as 1.28 A/mm, peak extrinsic transconductance of 310 mS/mm, unity current gain cutoff frequency (fT) of 51 GHz, and maximum frequency of oscillation (fmax) of 115 GHz. At 18 GHz, a continuous-wave output power density of 6.7 W/mm with power-added efficiency of 26.6% was obtained, yielding the highest reported power performance of AlGaN/GaN HEMTs at 18 GHz.
