    In this study, the current density-voltage (J-V) characteristic of Schottky diodes of indium-tin-oxide (ITO) contacts to p-type GaN (p-GaN) has been investigated. The calculated barrier-height value of ITO/p-GaN samples using the thermionic field-emission (TFE) model is 3.2 eV, which implies...

    The hole confinement due to the valence band offset of the Si/SiGe/Si quantum well causes the shrinkage of depletion region for the n-type Si/Si0.2Ge0.8/Si Schottky barrier diodes with Pt gates. The capacitance of Si/Si0.2Ge0.8/Si Schottky diodes has approximately two times the capacitance of...

    Proper analysis of the Schottky barrier height extraction methods shows that sulfur implantation followed by anneal does not effectively reduce the Schottky barrier height of NiSi/n-Si contacts. Instead, the results for sulfur implanted samples are consistent with enhanced field emission due to...

    We analyze the properties of Fe Schottky contacts prepared in situ on n-type GaN(0001) by molecular beam epitaxy. In particular, we investigate the suitability of these epitaxial Fe layers for electrical spin injection. Current-voltage-temperature measurements demonstrate pure field emission for...

    The DC accelerated aging behavior of the Co-Dy-Nb doped Zn-V-Mn-based varistors was investigated at different sintering temperatures of 850-950 °C. The microstructure of the samples consisted of ZnO grain as the main phase, and Zn(VO), ZnVO, and DyVO as the secondary phases, which acts as...
