A novel adaption of the mushroom gate structure has been realized and exhibited in MESFET as well as HEMT devices. The gate structure has a serrated appearance, and it realizes low input capacitance, in addition to the low resistance achievable using a conventional approach. At gate lengths below 0.15 micron, the device structure assumes a qualitatively different form, requiring a reassessment of the scaling rules. Initial results on working devices are presented.
