Paper Abstract

The contribution of the series resistance and contact resistance has been taken into account while working out the relation between zero bias resistance-area product and perimeter-to-area ratio of the diodes in variable area diode test structures. The effect of these resistances on the interpretation of the results from the variable area array experiment in HgCdTe test structures is discussed. The analysis of the experimental data to explain some of the past unexplained observations is presented.
