Laser-Annealed Gap Ohmic Contacts for High-Temperature Devices* Conference Paper uri icon


  • ABSTRACTThe results of successful Nd:YAG laser annealed ohmic contacts on n-type GaP are reported. Comparisons on identical laser and thermal annealed contacts on the same substrates are performed. In addition aging investigations are also studied. The results indicate that laser annealed contacts have far superior electrical characteristics, much better surface morphology and are substantially more stable with aging than the same but thermally alloyed ones.
