Abstract: We have systematically investigated low-frequency noise (LFN) in AlN/AlGaN/GaN metal-insulator-semiconductor (MIS) devices, where the AlN gate insulator layer was sputtering-deposited on the AlGaN surface, in comparison with LFN in AlGaN/GaN Schottky devices. By measuring LFN in ungated two-terminal devices and heterojunction field-effect transistors (HFETs), we extracted LFN characteristics in the intrinsic gated region of the HFETs. Although there is a bias regime of the Schottky-HFETs in which LFN is dominated by the gate leakage current, LFN in the MIS-HFETs is always dominated by only the channel current. Analyzing the channel-current-dominated LFN, we obtained Hooge parameters α for the gated region as a function of the sheet electron concentration n _s under the gate. In a regime of small n_s, both the MIS- and Schottky-HFETs exhibit α∝ns^<−1> . On the other hand, in a middle n_s regime of the MIS-HFETs, α decreases rapidly liken_s^<−ξ> with ξ ∼ 2-3, which is not observed for the Schottky-HFETs. In addition, we observe strong increase in α∝n_s^3 in a largen_ s regime for both the MIS- and Schottky-HFETs.
