Role of surface antisite defects in the formation of Schottky barriers Academic Article uri icon


  • Surface antisite defects produce electronic energy levels in the band gaps of III-V compound semiconductors. These levels can pin the Fermi energy at metal-semiconductor interfaces and cause Schottky-barrier formation. © 1982 The American Physical Society.
