The thermal stability of various gate metallizations on AlGaAsSb/InAs, with and without an InAs cap, was investigated. A W/Au gate metallization was found to be a good candidate for stable gate metallizations directly on AlGaAsSb. Ti/Pt/Au (30/40/80 nm) and Co/Si/Co/Si/Co gates are thermally stable on InAs. Cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy showed that degradation in the current-voltage characteristics of aged samples is associated with metal/InAs reactions.
