A novel, band-inverted semiconductor junction is proposed. The heterojunction consists of two column V semimetals that have undergone a semimetal-semiconductor transition, i.e., a thin Bi film of thickness ∼100 Å and a Bi1-xSbx alloy with 0.06

    A tunnel junction for intradevice contacts on GaSb substrates has been realized. By using solid source molecular beam epitaxy, we have fabricated abrupt, heavily doped homo- and heterojunctions of InAssSbd and GaSb to form a low resistive ohmic tunnel junction. The resitivity achieved was as low...
