Summary form only given. GaAs MESFETs with gate lengths from 250 to 30 nm were fabricated and characterized at microwave frequencies. The MESFETs, fabricated on MBE (molecular beam epitaxy) grown layers, were optimized, as far as possible, to reduce short-channel effects. It was found that the inverse proportionality of the gate length with fT does not hold for sub-100-nm gate-length GaAs MESFETs. In addition, deviation from the simple mod h21 mod versus frequency relationship was observed as the gate length was reduced to less than 100 nm.
