In order to interpret the effect of semiconductor thickness and annealing temperature on the electrical characteristics of Al/nCdTe/Au Schottky barrier diodes (SBDs), the forward and reverse bias current density-voltage (J-V) characteristics of these SBDs have been investigated in dark. Both of the values forward and reverse currents have decrease with increasing annealing temperature as well as the increase of thickness. The ideality factor (η), saturation current density (Js) and the barrier…

Current-voltage characteristics of Ag, Al, Ni-(n)CdTe junctions

Schottky barriers of Ag, Al, Ni-(n)CdTe structures have been prepared and studied. The films were prepared by rf sputtering and doped with Cd metal. Diode ideality factor of these junctions are

Structural, optical, photoluminescence, dielectric and electrical studies of vacuum-evaporated CdTe thin films

Highly-oriented CdTe thin films were fabricated on quartz and glass substrates by thermal evaporation technique in the vacuum of about 2 × 10 − 5 torr. The CdTe thin films were characterized by X-ray
