Paper Abstract

We introduce a new P-channel, enhancement mode, Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Field Effect Transistor (MOSFET) which is optimized for use at liquid helium temperatures. The new device, now labelled the ZK-111, operates very well to at least 1.8K. It can operate at power levels of a few picowatts, is zener diode protected, and has higher gain and transconductance, lower channel "ON" resistance, higher channel "OFF" resistance, and better thermal cycling stability than any MOSFET commonly used in infrared focal planes. It has a grounded gate 1/f spot noise that is less than 1μV/√Hz at 1 Hz, ,and is 1/f to beyond 50 KHz. It is now commercially available through Cryoelectronic Inc.
