We investigate the power switching mechanism to evaluate the power loss ( P D ) and efficiency ( η ) in MgZnO/ZnO (MZO)-based power high electron mobility transistor (HEMT), and physical parameters responsible for P D in molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) and dual ion beam sputtering (DIBS) grown MZO HEMT and compare the performance with the group III-nitride HEMTs. This work extensively probes all physical parameters such as two-dimensional electron gas (2DEG) density, mobility, switching frequency,

Results suggest that the MBE and DIBS grown MZO HEMT with the gate width ( W G ) of ∼ 205 and ∼ 280 mm at drain current coefficient (k) of 11 and 15, respectively, will achieve 99.96 and 99.95% of η and 9.03 and 12.53 W of P D , respectively. Moreover, W G value for DIBS-grown MZO HEMT is observed to further reduce in the range of 112-168 mm by using a Y 2 O 3 spacer layer leading to the maximum η in the range of 99.98-99.97% and the minimum P D in the range of 5-7 W. This work is significant for the development of cost-effective HEMTs for power switching applications.
