    We report on the electrical characterization of single-crystal ZnO and Au Schottky contacts formed thereon before and after bombarding them with 1.8 MeV protons. From capacitance–voltage measurements, we found that ZnO is remarkably resistant to high-energy proton bombardment and that...

    Zinc oxide is generally considered to be radiation hard, although there are few experimental reports supporting this assertion. In this paper, we present results on the changes in electrical performance of bulk Pt/ZnO Schottky rectifiers exposed to 40-MeV protons at fluences from 5 x 109 cm-2 to...

    We report the PtIr/ZnO nanowire/pentacene hybrid double diodes which are composed of the back-to-back Schottky and p-n junction diodes. The electric transport is dominated by both the Schottky barrier and the hybrid p-n junction. The diodes exhibit a low OFF current of 2×10-3 nA between...

    We have investigated the effect of sulfide treatment on the electrical characteristics of Pt contacts on (000-1) n-type ZnO (∼5×1015cm-3) single crystals. The Pt contact on conventionally cleaned ZnO surface shows an ohmic behavior. However, the contact produces a Schottky behavior,...

    Highly rectifying semimetal graphite/ZnO Schottky diodes with a low-ideality-factor (1.08 at 300 K) were investigated by temperature-dependent current-voltage measurements. The current transport was dominated by thermionic emission between 300 and 420 K and the extracted barrier height followed...

    Various well-known research groups have reported points defects in bulk zinc oxide (ZnO) [ND (intrinsic): 1014–1017 cm-3] naming oxygen vacancy, zinc interstitial, and/or zinc antisite having activation energy in the range of 0.32–0.22 eV below conduction band. The attribution is...

  • Improved Pt/Au and W/Pt/Au Schottky contacts on n-type ZnO using ozone cleaning. Ip, K.; Gila, B.P.; Onstine, A.H.; Lambers, E.S.; Heo, Y.W.; Baik, K.H.; Norton, D.P.; Pearton, S.J.; Kim, S.; LaRoche, J.R.; Ren, F. // Applied Physics Letters;6/21/2004, Vol. 84 Issue 25, p5133 

    UV-ozone cleaning prior to metal deposition of either e-beam Pt contacts or sputtered W contacts on n-type single-crystal ZnO is found to significantly improve their rectifying characteristics. Pt contacts deposited directly on the as-received ZnO surface are Ohmic but show rectifying behavior...

    A method is proposed to account for the effects of Schottky barrier height inhomogeneities on the Richardson constant (A*) extracted from current-voltage-temperature (I-V-T) measurements. Our approach exploits a correlation between the extracted Richardson constant and effective barrier height....

    The Au/ZnO Schottky contacts fabricated using H2O2-treated unintentionally doped ZnO epilayers showed an abnormal behavior in their transport properties; i.e., the background carrier density-dependent trade-off relation between the barrier height and the ideality factor was observed. This result...
