The heterojunction charging and discharging process during the gate voltage variation in GaN HFET is investigated through the calculation of heterojunction bands and their electron states under various gate voltages. The conduction band bottoms in inner and outer channel under different bias voltages are calculated using the self-consistent solution of two dimensional Poisson equation and Schrödinger equation. A localized electron gas potential barrier is introduced to discriminate the different transport behaviors of drift electron gasses and localized electron gasses. Two sorts of charging and discharging processes about heterojuncton and localized electron gasses during the variation of gate and drain voltages are investigated, from which a voltage-controlled model describing the dynamic channel current is established, and various transient current spectrums that can not be comprehended in trapping model have been explained by this new dynamic model successfully. © 2017, Editorial Office of «Res.

Silicon-based MEMS microthruster matrix has gained great attention as a micro-impulsion system in recent years, especially in application of attitude control of the nanosatellites. Although silicon serves well as the structural material for microthruster matrix in several aspects, its ability to resist ablation is rather weak. In this paper, SiC membrane is introduced to the surface of micro-chambers in order to enhance the ablation resistance of silicon-based MEMS microthrusters. A time-efficient four-step deposition process was carried out to prepare high-quality cavity-free SiC membrane. Microthrusters with SiC membrane coverage were tested under high-energy propellant experiment. The result shows that the SiC membrane can perfectly resist the ablation of microthrusters from nano-Al/CuO propellant. © 2017 IEEE.

This communication presents a 60-GHz wideband circularly polarized (CP) U-slot patch antenna array of 4× 4 elements on low temperature cofired ceramic (LTCC). A CP U-slot patch antenna is used as the array element to enhance the impedance bandwidth and a stripline sequential rotation feeding scheme is applied to achieve wide axial ratio (AR) bandwidth. Meanwhile, a grounded coplanar waveguide (GCPW) to stripline transition is designed for probe station measurement. The fabricated antenna array has a dimension of 14× 16× 1.1 mm}3. The simulated and measured impedance bandwidths, AR bandwidths, and radiation patterns are investigated and compared. Measured results show that the proposed antenna array has a wide impedance bandwidth from 50.5 GHz to 67 GHz for vert S} -11} vert < -10∼ dB}, and a wide AR bandwidth from 54 GHz to 65.5 GHz for AR}< 3∼ dB}. In addition, it exhibits a peak gain of 16 dBi and a beam-shaped pattern with 3-dB beam width of 20 circ. Moreover, its AR keeps below 3 dB within the 3-dB beam width. © 1963-2012 IEEE.

Wideband 60-GHz vertical off-center dipole antenna and its arrays on low-temperature cofired ceramic substrate are presented in this paper. The dipole antenna is designed using the off-center-fed technology to cover all the four channels defined in 60-GHz standards from 57 to 66 GHz. A 4 \times 4 planar array is optimized to achieve a maximum gain of 15.6 dBi at 60 GHz and above 10.2 dBi in the passband, while a beam-steering array is optimized to give a 5-dB measured beamwidth wider than 80\circ at 60 GHz. Measured results indicate our designs meet the above requirements well and satisfy 60-GHz applications. © 1963-2012 IEEE.

It is very important to describe FET's large-signal impedance accurately for MMIC design. In order to simulate FET's large signal characteristic, it is necessary to research its gate equivalent capacitance model in the large signal model, especially in high frequency. Based on previous results, the paper deduces a new gate-source/gate-drain capacitance equation. By comparing the loadpull results of a 6×80 μm GaAs PHEMT device, it is shown that the accurate gate equivalent capacitance model improves the precision of FET's large signal model greatly. This helps the research of device model and MMIC design.

Compared with Silicon, 4H-SiC is a superior material for power devices. With wide band-gap, high thermal conductivity and high critical electric field, 4H-SiC is a good candidate for high-power, high-temperature, high-frequency, low-loss and radiation-hard applications. This paper reviews the development of 4H-SiC material and power device technology for the recent 10 years, with emphasis on the bottle-neck technology problems.

By ignoring the permeating of the electron wave function into the barrier layer, a new train of thought of solving the Poisson equation to obtain the energy band in barrier layer without electron is proposed. A new method is put forward that the Poisson equation in barrier layer could be solved by treating the polarization charge, impurity charge, and electron charge outside the barrier layer as interface charge at the boundary of barrier layer.The energy band in barrier layer calculated by the Poisson equation agrees with the self-consistent energy band solution. A polynomial of electron density is used to fit the energy level of fundamental sub-band calculated by the self-consistent energy band software, from which a transcendental equation of electron density is derived. For four different heterostructures, the electron density and energy band in barrier layer calculated by the mentioned transcendental equation of electron density agree with the self-consistent energy band solution, from which a new method to self-consistently solve the Poisson equation and Schrodinger equation is established. The interaction between the electron density in channel well and the heterostructure band in barrier layer is investigated by the mentioned Poisson equation in barrier layer, and thus the variation of electron density with the heterostructure in barrier layer is discussed and a new idea of band tailoring is proposed. ©, 2015, NUAA Printing House.

In this paper, two ku band SSPAs using GaAs and GaN MMICs respectively were developed. Both of all have a same 8-way combining architecture and a same packaging module. The two SSPAs were measured on a same pulse width and duty cycle with different drain voltages. Compared with the GaAs SSPA, the GaN SSPA is more compact and efficient. © (2013) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

This letter presents a broadband transition between microstrip and CPW located at the opposite lawyer of the substrate. Basically, the transition is based on two couples of microstrip-to-slotline transitions. In order to widen bandwidth of the transition, a short-ended parallel microstrip stub is added. A demonstrator transition has been designed, fabricated and measured. Results show that a frequency range of 2.05 to 9.96 GHz (referred to return loss of 10 dB) is obtained. © 2015 IEEE.
