The super-lattice power amplifier with diamond enhanced superjunctions (SPADES) is a device that incorporates nanocrystalline diamond superjunctions into the super-lattice castellated field effect transistor (SLCFET), to improve breakdown voltage. A diamond superjunction is formed with p-type nanocrystalline diamond to balance mutual depletion between the two-dimensional electron gas superlattices and the doped diamond in order to reduce the peak electric field in the drain access region. Formation of the diamond superjunction presents several challenges, such as managing diamond conformality, strain, and control over p-type doping. Optimization of diamond growth led to conformal films, with low stress, and linear dependence hole concentration from p-type doping, suitable for the SPADES device.
