Abstract: The electrical and structural properties of a practical Ge/Au ohmic contact to n-type, ion implanted GaAs, has been studied. By the use of rapid thermal annealing (RTA) contact resistances as low as 0.18 Ω-mm have been obtained. The minimum in the contact resistance coincides with the formation of a ternary alloy phase at the interface and the maximum in the texture of the deposited metal film. Secondary ion mass spectroscopy (SIMS) indicates the loss of both Ga and As from the substrate after all heat treatment (and in the case of As for as-deposited) and this is associated with the ultimate degradation of contact performance. Using classical diffusion analysis, SIMS profiles yield values for diffusion coefficient and activation energy of D0 = 2 × 10−8 cm2 s−1, ΔE = 0.5 eV for Ge indiffusion into the substrate and D0 = 2.8 × 10−9, ΔE = 0.5 eV for Ga outdiffusion through the metallisation. The mechanism for diffusion is discussed.
