The performance of a power MESFET has been significantly improved by using an AlGaAs heterobuffer. The conduction-band discontinuity at the heterointerface acts as a potential barrier for electron confinement; the RF conversion efficiency and power gain of the FET were very high compared with a standard MESFET. We have achieved 41% power-added efficiency with 0.88 W/mm power density at 21.5 GHz and 30% efficiency with 0.56 W/mm at 35 GHz.
