In this paper, we demonstrate the influence of channel doping profile on the performances of camel-gate field effect transistors (CAMFETs). For comparison, single and tri-step doping channel structures with identical doping thickness products are employed, while other parameters are kept unchanged. The results of a theoretical analysis show that the single doping channel FET with lightly doping active layer has higher barrier height and drain-source saturation current. However, the transconductance is decreased. For a tri-step doping channel structure, it is found that the output drain-source saturation current and the barrier height are enhanced. Furthermore, the relatively voltage independent performances are improved. Two CAMFETs with single and tri-step doping channel structures have been fabricated and discussed. The devices exhibit nearly voltage independent transconductances of 144 mS mm−1 and 222 mS mm−1 for single and tri-step doping channel CAMFETs, respectively. The operation gate voltage may extend to ± 1.5 V for a tri-step doping channel CAMFET. In addition, the drain current densities of > 750 and 405 mA mm−1 are obtained for the tri-step and single doping CAMFETs. These experimental results are inconsistent with theoretical analysis.
