Paper Abstract

Schottky barrier diodes have received much attention for use as detectors in fiber optic communication systems requiring large bandwidth and good signal-to-noise performance. This paper will discuss what characteristics go into making maximum performance avalanche Schottky barrier detectors and why the Schottky barrier diode is a good candidate. Specifically, the report will discuss the design and performance of platinum silicide (PtSi) Schottky diodes.
