Paper Abstract

The performance of W/Pt/doping element/Pd and Pt/doping element/Pd ohmic contacts has been investigated, where Ge, Si, and Sn were employed as doping elements. The contacts were deposited by vacuum sputtering on n+-GaAs substrate plates and GaAs or AlGaAs epitaxial layers, then annealed by a power YAG:Nd laser. The influence of the doping elements on the parameters for ohmic contacts was not significant, with germanium being the best, we obtained a minimum value of rc equals 5 X 10-6 (Omega) cm2. The layers of GaAs and AlGaAs were prepared with (delta) -doping by MOVPE epitaxial growth method. The minimal values of contact resistivities of 1.1 X 10-4 (Omega) cm2 and 7.35 X (Omega) cm2 were achieved.
