ABSTRACT
Modulation-doped field-effect transistor structures grown by molecular beam epitaxy were excimer laser annealed at a wavelength of 248 nm and energy density of 75–160 mJ/cm2. A transconductance of over 100 mS/mm was obtained. Source resistance was minimized at 0.8–1.0 Ω mm. The energy density threshold for interdiffusion is 90 mJ/cm2.

    Atomic layer epitaxy has been used for the low-temperature deposition of planar-doped structures using organometallic sources AsH3 and H2Se. Carrier concentration in the 1019/cm3 range was achieved, with a sharp concentration profile comparable to the best reported for equivalent structures by...

    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...

    A fabrication process of coplanar homojunction thin-film transistors (TFTs) is proposed for amorphous In–Ga–Zn–O (a-IGZO), which employs highly doped contact regions naturally formed by deposition of upper protection layers made of hydrogenated silicon nitride (SiNX:H). The...
