A low side lobe air-filled slot array is proposed and fabricated using silicon micromachining technology for millimeter-wave application. As is well known, the high-permittivity silicon prohibits the silicon-based antenna from having good performance. Here, this problem is addressed through manufacturing air-filled antenna on silicon substrate. An 8-way unequal power divider is adopted to excite eight air-filled slots and the excitation coefficients present a taper. At the end of the power divider, an air-filled SIW cavity is used to improve antenna performance and suppress wave leakage, and eight silicon cuboids are stretched into the cavity beneath each slot to acquire good impedance matching. The input interface is selected as the ground-signal-ground structure to facilitate antenna-in-package solution that requires the integration of the antenna and chips or integrated circuits. The three-layered antenna is fabricated using through-wafer etching, gold-plating, optical alignment, and wafer bonding processes. The measured −10 dB impedance bandwidth is 1.27 GHz, and a measured fan-shaped beam at 58.5 GHz with a broadside gain of 11.95 dBi and a SLL of 18.6 dB is obtained. The 3-dB beam width is about 14° in H-plane and 8-dB beam width is more than 175° in E-plane. IEEE

In this paper, we have proposed an extremely-small, low-cost and high reliability 3-dimensional micro-system which is composed of radio frequency (RF) components. The microwave monolithic integrated circuits of the T/R module are mounted onto a silicon substrate which is fabricated by MEMS technology. Some passive components, such as filters, attenuators and transmission lines, are embedded in the silicon substrate. The full T/R module consists of a low noise amplifier, two driver amplifiers, a limiter, two attenuators, two switches and a MEMS filter. The maximum of the measured noise figure of the T/R module is 3.5dB. The measured Tx and Rx gain are 35dB and 25dB respectively, and the output power at 1-dB gain compression point is 25dBm. By comparing with the samples obtained by the Surface Mount Technology (SMT) process, the volume is only half of the similar products, while the performance is basically the same, which verifies the feasibility of the technical approach. © 2016 IEEE.

The high-field transport characteristics of nearly lattice-matched InAlN/GaN heterostructures with different barrier thickness were investigated. It is found that the current in the InAlN/GaN heterostructures with ultrathin barrier shows unsaturated behaviors (or secondary rising) at high voltage, which is different from that of AlGaN/GaN heterostructures. This phenomenon is more obvious if the barrier thickness is thinner and the channel width is narrower. The experimental results demonstrate that it is the increasing carrier density excited from the more defect states by the hot electrons with larger electron saturation velocity that results in the unsaturated current behaviors in InAlN/GaN heterostructures. Our results pave a way for further optimizing InAlN barrier design and improving the reliability of InAlN/GaN HEMTs.

Enhancement-mode (E-mode) AlGaN/GaN heterojunction field effect transistors (HFETs) with a nominal gate length of 0.35 μm are fabricated on a SiC substrate by fluorine plasma ion implantation without the use of gate recess. The threshold voltage is measured to be +0.2 V by linear extrapolation from the transfer characteristics. The E-mode device exhibits a saturation drain current density of 735 mA/mm at a gate bias of 4 V, a peak transconductance of 269 mS/mm, a current-gain cutoff frequency fT of 39 GHz, and a maximum oscillation frequency fmax of 91 GHz. At 18 GHz, the fabricated E-mode device exhibits a maximum output power density of 3.65 W/mm, a linear gain of 11.6 dB, and a peak power-added efficiency of 42%. This is the first report of the large-signal performance of AlGaN/GaN E-mode HFETs in the Ku-band. © 2006 IEEE.

The growth mechanisms of vertical compositional inhomogeneities were investigated in lattice-matched AlInN films prepared by metalorganic chemical vapour deposition. X-ray diffraction and secondary ion mass spectrometry measurements demonstrated a fluctuation of the indium (In) atomic fraction at the initial growth stage. Some In droplets formed on the surface of the inhomogeneous AlInN films, when In was excess caused by the initial Al-rich AlInN layer. The compositional inhomogeneities were attributed to the self-assembled In droplets by increasing the surface In content. © 2011 IOP Publishing Ltd.

CdO:Ag nanocomposites with metallic Ag nanoparticles embedded in the polycrystalline CdO matrix were synthesized by the solid-state reaction method. The addition of Ag led to increased grain boundaries of CdO and created numerous CdO/Ag interfaces. By incorporating Ag into the CdO matrix, the power factor was increased which was probably due to the carrier energy filtering effect induced by the enhanced energy-dependent scattering of electrons. In addition, reduced thermal conductivity was also achieved by stronger phonon scattering from grain boundaries, CdO/Ag interfaces and Ag nanoparticles. These concomitant effects resulted in enhanced ZT values for all CdO:Ag nanocomposites, demonstrating that the strategy of introducing metallic Ag nanoparticles into the CdO host was very effective in optimizing the thermoelectric performance.

Carbon electronics based on diamond and graphene field effect transistors have attracted significant attention for potential RF applications. Graphene is a 2 dimensional atomic layer of carbon atoms with unique electronic transport properties, such as outstanding carrier mobility and high carrier saturation velocity, which make graphene an excellent candidate for applications in high-speed analog electronics. Diamond also shows several physical properties that make it interesting for high power applications. In this paper, we discuss the current status and the prospects and problems of graphene and diamond transistors. Those properties of graphene and diamond relevant for transistors, including preparation of high-quality graphene film in large-scale, weak current saturation of the graphene transistors, growth of single crystalline and electronic diamond film, and doping of the diamond are reviewed. Our works on graphene and diamond electronics are also introduced. With the deep going of the investigation, carbon electronics should be used in the near future. © 2014 IEEE.

We investigate the temperature dependent electrical transport properties of quasi-free standing bilayer graphene on 4H-SiC (0001) substrate. Three groups of monolayer epitaxial graphene and corresponding quasi-free standing bilayer graphene with different crystal quality and layer number homogeneity are prepared. Raman spectroscopy and atomic-force microscopy are used to obtain their morphologies and layer number, and verify the complete translation of buffer layer into graphene. The highest room temperature mobility reaches 3700 cm2/V·s for the quasi-free standing graphene. The scattering mechanism analysis shows that poor crystal quality and layer number inhomogeneity introduce stronger interacting of SiC substrate to the graphene layer and more impurities, which limit the carrier mobility of the quasi-free standing bilayer graphene samples. © 2014 AIP Publishing LLC.

Owing to its ultra high carrier mobility, graphene transistor shows great application potential as high-frequency electronics. Intrinsic cutoff frequency (fT) of 427 GHz has been reported. But the maximum oscillation frequency (fmax) remains low, limiting its use in practical radio-frequency (RF) circuits. Here, we report an ultra clean self-aligned graphene transistors fabrication by pre-deposition of gold film on graphene as protection layer. This improved self-aligned fabrication keeps graphene away from any possible contamination, which makes our graphene transistors show good gate coupling and less parasitics, thus good dc and RF performances. The 100 nm gate-length graphene transistor exhibits a fmax of 105 GHz. Our study shows a pathway to fabrication of high-performance graphene transistors for future application in RF circuits. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
