I understand that in an n channel MOSFET as Vgs increases, electrons are attracted towards the gate forming an n channel. These electrons are responsible for the conduction of the MOSFET. As Vds crosses saturation voltage a pinch-off occurs. This pinch-off results in channel tapering and the n channel effectively reduces. My question is if tapering occurs, shouldn't the available charge carriers in the channel reduces thus reducing current flow?
