Paper Abstract

In this work, we propose a novel Graphene field effect transistor (GFET) with ohmic Source/Drain contacts having capacitive extension towards the Gate. The ohmic contacts of the proposed GFET are used for DC biasing as like as conventional GFETs whereas their extended parts which are capacitively coupled to the channel reduce access region length as well as the access resistance and provide a low impedance route for the high frequency RF signal. Reduction of access resistance along with the paralleling of ohmic contact resistance and real part of capacitive impedance result in an overall lower Source/Drain resistance which eventually increases the current gain cut-off frequency, fT. We have studied and compared the DC and RF characteristics of the baseline conventional GFET and proposed GFET using analytical and numerical techniques.
