|Abstract:||The metallurgical stability of ohmic contacts: Pt, Pt/Ti, Au/Ti, Au/Pt/Ti, and Au/Pt/Ti/W, on a 500 Å thick p+-InGaAs base of InP/InGaAs/InP HBT's have been investigated as a function of anneal temperature. All contacts were stable after a 300°C-30 s anneal. Pt contact failed at 350°C whereas Pt/Ti, Au/Ti, and Au/Pt/Ti contacts failed at 400°C. The failure mechanism was a collector leakage short owing to the penetration of Pt or Ti through the thin base. Only HBT's with Au/Pt/Ti/W contact were still functional after a 400°C anneal with no apparent shift in the turn-on voltage for the emitter and collector junctions.|
