Paper Abstract

GaAs MESFETs are very promising for the fabrication of the electronic part of long wavelength InP-based optoelectronic integrated circuits. A special growth procedure has been developed for the heteroepitaxial growth of GaAs on InP. This resulted in MESFET performances similar to results obtained on GaAs substrates. A transconductance of 100 mS/mm and a cutt-off frequency of 7 GHz was obtained for 1.5μm gate MESFETs. The monolithic integration of GaAs MESFETs and InP buried waveguides did not influence their performances.
