GaAs/AlGaAs Pnp heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs) were fabricated and tested on (100) Si substrates for the first time. A common-emitter current gain of β=8 was measured for the typical devices with an emitter area of 50×50 μm2 at a collector current density of 1×104 A/cm2 with no output negative differential resistance up to 280 mA, highest current used. A very high base-collector breakdown voltage of 10 V was obtained. Comparing the similar structures grown on GaAs substrates, the measured characteristics clearly demonstrate that device grade hole injection can be obtained in GaAs on Si epitaxial layers despite the presence of dislocations
