An InAs/GaP/InGaP rectifier has been fabricated using a semiconductor-semiconductor “Schottky” junction to utilize the thermal stability of the semiconductor-semiconductor interface. The InAs/GaP/InGaP system demonstrates rectifying characteristics with an ideality factor of 2.3 and a current–voltage extracted barrier height of 0.96 eV. It exhibits low reverse bias leakage current and achieves breakdown electric field of 0.6 MV/cm. The InAs/GaP/InGaP system maintains the rectifying characteristics up to 600 °C. Further improvement of the thermal stability is expected to be achieved by reducing the diffusion of Si dopant atoms across the InAs/GaP interface at high temperature. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
