This letter reports the demonstration of N-polar Al0.8Ga0.2N/AlN continuously-graded-channel polarization-doped field-effect transistors (PolFETs) on SiC. A PolFET with a source to drain distance of 12 μm exhibited a maximum drain current of 62.8 mA/mm and an ON/OFF current ratio of 1.1× 104. The maximum drain current was stable between 20 °C and 250 °C operating temperatures. With the addition of 30-nm-thick Al2O3 gate insulator the maximum drain current increased to 126 mA/mm.
