Electron transport and drain current noise in field effect transistor with n + nn + InP channel have been studied by Monte Carlo particle simulation which simultaneously solves the Boltzmann transport and pseudo-2D Poisson equations. It is shown that at gate voltages giving excess electron concentration in n-region of channel the drain current self-oscillations in THz frequency range are possible. The self-oscillations are driven by electron plasma instability.
