ABSTRACT
Hybrid poly(3-hexylthiophene)/ZnO devices are investigated as rectifying heterojunctions for microelectronics applications. A low-temperature atomic layer deposition of ZnO on top of poly(3-hexylthiophene) allows the fabrication of diodes featuring a rectification ratio of nearly 105 at ±4 V and a current density of 104 A/cm2. Electrical characteristics are discussed taking into account the chemical structure of the stack and the energy band diagram.

    We introduce a transparent diode that shows both high rectifying ratio and low leakage current at process temperature below 250 °C. This device is clearly distinguished from all previous transparent diodes in that the rectifying behavior results from the junction between a semiconductor...

    We report fabrication of homostructural ZnO p–n junctions that contain arsenic (As)-doped ZnO (ZnO:As) and intrinsic n-type ZnO layers. We also describe the metallization process for forming ohmic contacts to p-type ZnO. ZnO films were synthesized on n-type SiC substrates by hybrid beam...

    Nitrogen doped ZnO (ZnO:N) films were deposited by atmospheric atomic layer deposition (ALD) between 100 and 300 °C. Postannealing was required to remove compensating defects. After a low temperature dark annealing, originally n-type films became p-type. Films deposited at low temperatures...

    The authors have achieved directional coherent random lasing from p-GaN/i-ZnO–SiO2 nanocomposite/n-ZnO heterojunction diodes. This is due to the use of relatively low refractive indexed carrier injection layers (i.e., cladding layers) and relatively high refractive indexed intrinsic layer...

    The light-emitting diode of p-ZnO/n-GaAs heterojunction was grown by metal-organic chemical vapor deposition. The p-ZnO films have been formed by the doping As atoms which diffuse into ZnO film from GaAs substrate. The p-type behavior of As-doped ZnO films based on As-doped p-ZnO/n-GaAs,...
