Paper Abstract

Single GaSb Nanowire Field Effect Transistors (NWFETs) were fabricated and their electrical transport measurements were conducted at the temperatures ranging from 298 K to 503 K. The current on/off ratios as large as 3 orders of magnitude were observed. The Raman spectra and EDAX were performed on single wires to verify the GaSb property before and after the transport study. The temperature dependent current-voltage characteristic shows asymmetric current through the device due to asymmetric back-to-back Schottky contacts at the two ends of the wire. Arrhenius plots revealed effective Schottky barrier heights around ØBeff =0.53eV. Measurement conducted on back-gated nanowire transistors shows the polarity of nanowire to be n-type.
