Student thesis: Master's Thesis


Fabrication process of capacitors and Schottky diodes with nanogap electrodes is explained in this Thesis. The Schottky diode is made with IGZO in the nanogap, whereas the capacitor is made with ZrO2 in the nanogap which acts as the dielectric. Moreover, the electric characterization of both the diode and capacitor was obtained for different frequencies and different diameters. The end result showed that as the frequency increases the diode performance increases, but the capacitance of the capacitors decreases. Also, the barrier height and concentration were obtained using the Mott-Schottky plot for different frequencies. The 10MHz had the highest carrier concentration (5.9E+18cm-3) and barrier height (1V).
