|Issue Date:||Feb-1996||Citation:||Chor, E.F., Malik, R.J., Hamm, R.A., Ryan, R. (1996-02). Metallurgical stability of ohmic contacts on thin base InP/InGaAs/InP HBT's.

ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1109/55.484124||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.||Source Title:||IEEE Electron Device Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/80711||ISSN:||07413106||DOI:||10.1109/55.484124|
