    The simultaneous diffusion of zinc and indium into GaAs was performed prior to the deposition of a refractory contact metallization. This has resulted in low resistance contacts to p-type GaAs. We demonstrate that specific contact resistivities as low as 5 × 10[sup -7] and 2 × 10[sup -7...

    The Ohmic nature of the nonalloyed metal contact on molecular beam epitaxial GaAs grown at 200 °C was studied. The specific contact resistances at room temperature and 120 K were 1.5×10-3 and 7.0×10-1 Ω cm2, respectively. These values are anomalously low considering that the...

    An in situ rf sputter precleaning of the GaAs substrate before AuGeNi ohmic metal deposition yields contact resistance Rc=0.11 Ω mm at a peak doping of ∼1018/cm3. Excellent uniformity and thermal stability are achieved across the wafer. The contacts do not deteriorate appreciably after...
