High injection will therefore occur first in the lowest doped region of the diode since that region has the highest minority carrier density.

Real Schottky diodes Real Schottky diodes also have minority-carrier injection through their barriers although it is smaller by several orders of Size: KB. A Schottky barrier, named after Walter H. Schottky, is a potential energy barrier for electrons formed at a metal-semiconductor junction [17].

Schottky barriers have rectifying characteristics, and then they are suitable for use as diodes. One of the basic characteristics of a Schottky barrier is its height, regularly denoted by Φ B (see Fig.

tain the barrier heights of the Schottky diodes. The relationship between the capacitance and the applied voltage in Schottky diodes is given by [4] (1) where V bi is the built-in potential, χ S is the dielectric constant of the semiconductor, ε 0 is the permittivity in vacuum, and D N is the donor concentration.

But, a high barrier Schottky diode injects minority carrier charge at forward bias. For this reason minority Author: Shahidul Hassan. Abstract The influence of minority carrier (i.e.

There is no minority carrier injection at the Schottky junction. Thus, the CMOS latch-up problem can be eliminated by replacing the source/drain of the NFET with Schottky junctions.

In addition, the Schottky S/D MOSFET would have shallow junctions and low series resistance. So far, Schottky S/D MOSFETs have lower performance.

Minority carriers in the space charge region of a Schottky diode can only play a dominating role in a so-called "high barrier Schottky contact" [6], which is composed of the local band bending. It is shown that for low barrier Schottky diodes the minority carrier injection is negligible and the expression I = I s [exp (q(V- IR)/ kT) - 1] describes the I- V characteristics over large bias range.

For high barrier C12 C12 V Schottky diodes the exact solution must be used as minority carriers are injected and the series resistance is. Small-area high-barrier Schottky diodes have a very high dynamic resistance.

Consequently, special care is needed when measuring the current-voltage characteristic of such diodes. The reported observation of carrier recombination in the depletion layer of high-barrier IrSi/Si Schottky diodes at room temperature is shown to be due to instrumental loading of the by: 2.

The “turn on voltage” of a Schottky diode is typically smaller than a comparable p-n junction since the barrier to forward current flow (m- s) is typically small. This “turn on” voltage can be as small as Volts in some Si Schottky diodes.

This makes a Schottky diode the best choice for power switch protection in inductiveFile Size: 3MB. Minority carrier injection For very high Schottky barriers where Φ B is a significant fraction of the band gap of the semiconductor, the forward bias current may instead be carried "underneath" the Schottky barrier, as minority carriers in the semiconductor.
