ABSTRACT
A new hetero-Schottky structure for the study of Schottky barriers and heterojunctions is discussed. Photoelectric measurements have revealed a correlation between Au/GaAs and Au/AlxGa1-xAs Schottky barrier heights and GaAs/AlxGa1-xAs heterojunction band offsets. The conduction-band discontinuity ΔEc in the GaAs/AlxGa1-xAs system is determined, and the ratio ΔEc:ΔEg is found to vary between 69±5% and 58±5% for x=0.15–0.48.

    The occurrence of low currents in metal-insulator-metal (MIM) structures when high fields are present depends on the presence of a large energy barrier to charge injection at both metal-insulator interfaces. Formation of an Ohmic contact at either metal-insulator interface results in the easy...
