    Four-terminal ambipolar ballistic electron emission microscopy studies are conducted on Au/Si and Cu/Si Schottky contacts fabricated on back-gated silicon-on-insulator wafers, allowing the electric field to be varied so that both electron (n)- and hole (p)-Schottky barrier heights can be...

    A heterojunction between thin films of nanocrystalline diamond (NCD) and 4H-SiC has been developed. Undoped and B-doped NCDs were deposited on both n- and p- SiC epilayers. I-V measurements on p+ NCD/n- SiC indicated Schottky rectifying behavior with a turn-on voltage of around 0.2 V. The...

    We report on a correlation between deep-level defects and turn-on recovery characteristics in AlGaN/GaN hetero-structures, employing Schottky barrier diodes. Photo-capacitance spectroscopy measurements reveal three specific deep levels located at ∼2.07, ∼2.80, and ∼3.23 eV below...
