Kink-free AlInAs/GaInAs/InP HEMTs have been fabricated from an MBE structure grown under normal growth condition. Devices with 1 mu m gate-length exhibit an extrinsic transconductance of 450 mS/mm and a maximum drain current of 600 mA/mm which represent the best results for 1 mu m gate devices. The DC output conductance shows no kink over the entire gate bias range. The elimination of the kink is attributed to the high quality AlInAs buffer layer and a low mismatch between the AlInAs buffer layer and InP substrate.
