Silicon wafer processing is described which provides submicrometer epitaxial layers on top of high-resistivity silicon substrates for fabrication of high-frequency metal-semiconductor field-effect transistors. Silicon-dioxide underetching at the border of an oxide window, performed in hydrogen at elevated temperatures, is one method of realizing 1-micrometer device structures.
