Paper Abstract

Experiments have been performed on Ni/n-Si(111) Schottky diodes fabricated by the thermal vacuum deposition of nickel on n/n+ Si epitaxial wafers at approximately 10-5 torr pressure. (I - V) and (C - V) characteristics have been measured at different frequencies in the range 10 KHz-1 MHz. Hydrogenation effects on the diode characteristics have been reported from (I - V) and (C - V) studies. It has been found that hydrogen lowers the work function of nickel and also generates the interfacial traps at the Si- SiO2 interface. These results are found in agreement with the results based on transient capacitance response and (C - V) studies. Slight passivation of deep donor states responding the low frequency test signal has also been observed after hydrogenating the diode. Interface states parameters have been extracted from (C - V) characteristics using the metal-interfacial layer semiconductor (MIS) structure model.
