Paper Abstract

Highly accurate resistances can be made by iteratively laser inducing local diffusion of dopants from the drain and source of a gateless field effect transistor into its channel, thereby forming an electrical link between two adjacent p-n junction diodes. These laser tuned microdevices have been electrically characterized and their current-voltage (I-V) behaviors are linear at low voltages and sublinear at higher voltages where carrier mobility is affected by the presence of high fields. Considering that the microdevice is a one dimensional trap less n+ υ n+ structure, we have developed a theoretical current-voltage equation that satisfies these experimental results.
