Paper Abstract

High barrier height metal-insulator (oxide)-semiconductor diodes were fabricated using Au or Yb on p-InP, and Au or Pd on n-InP. Au oxide is unnecessary for p-InP whereas a chemically-grown oxide on n-InP produces a barrier height as high as 0.859eV. Ellipsometry and ESCA were used to determine oxide thickness of about 40A and a mixed composition. Current-voltage-temperature data reveal different conduction mechanisms depending on structure and temperature. Certain conditions suggest a surface state recombination due to a 0.4eV level above the valence band. Operation under steady for-ward or reverse bias stabilizes diodes with thermal oxide on n-InP but shows some degradation with chemical oxides.
