Metal – SC Contacts Metal • Comparison between ohmic and Schottky contacts: Ohmic: N-type Φm < Φs P-type Φm > Φs Schottky: Φm > Φs Φm < Φs – No depletion occurs in Ohmic junction because No majority carrier accumulation is responsible majority • Ohmic contacts are generally formed using heavily Ohmic doped SC so as to reduce the initial barrier (V0) doped • Interface energy states can exist – Due to thin oxides on the SC, surface termination – Leads to interface energy states that increase the Leads Heterojunctions Heterojunctions • Definition: junction between two dissimilar SC – Usually epitaxial layers • Abrupt interfaces • Low defect densities – Heterojunctions utilize materials of differi...
