摘要: Based on the simple interfacial-layer theory, the extraction methods for the interface parameters of the metal-semiconductor contact have been developed and applied to characterize both the Schottky-barrier diodes and the ohmic contacts in a self-consistent manner. It has been shown that the physical parameters at the metal-semiconductor interface can be extracted from the I-V characteristics of the Schottky-barrier diodes and the degradation of the thermal-equilibrium barrier height due to the thermal cycle can be directly modeled in terms of the extracted interface parameters. Besides, using the extracted parameters, the specified surface-treatment process can be evaluated by the extracted thermal-equilibrium barrier height, and thus the strongly process-dependent specific contact resistivity rho(c) of the ohmic contacts can be theoretically calculated by a modified tunneling model considering the impurity band. Furthermore, by comparing the simulated results and the measured rho(c) data deduced from the Al and Ti contacts on both doping types of the Si-substrate, satisfactory agreements have been obtained.
