Paper Abstract

Non-equilibrium (hot) occupancy of longitudinal-optical (LO) phonon modes is considered for InAlN/AlN/GaN and related structures with two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) channels located in GaN and subjected to high electric fields. The channel operation is found to depend critically on the LO-mode occupancy controlled by hot-phonon lifetime. The lifetime dependences on the occupancy and the 2DEG density are presented and discussed in terms of plasmon-assisted decay of hot-phonons. The optimal 2DEG density for the fastest removal of the LO-mode heat is estimated.
