Impact of the etching time and current density on Capacitance-Voltage characteristics of P-type of porous silicon

Title variants
Languages of publication
In This paper, electrochemical etching teqniques was using to formation of nano crystalline porous silicon layer on p-type Si substrates. Measurement of capacitance – voltage characteristics at various etching time and current densities were used for calculated built in voltage and type of heterojunction. The built in voltage values were decreased with increasing etching time and current densities for both anisotype Al/PS/p-Si/Al heterojunction. These characteristics are interpreted by assuming the abrupt heterojunction model. The effect of different etching time and current densities on electrical properties of PS have been investigated.
