Özet

Au/n-GaAs Schottky barrier diodes (SBDs) have been fabricated. The effect of indentation on Schottky diode parameters such as Schottky barrier height (phi(b)) and ideality factor (n) was studied by current-voltage (I-V) measurements. The method used for indentation was the Vickers microhardness test at room temperature. The experimental results showed that the I-V characteristics move to lower currents due to an increase of Ob with increasing indentation weight, while contacts showed a nonideal diode behaviour.
