Thin-film MOM-diodes for infrared detection

Abstract

Thin-film metal-oxide-metal (MOM) diodes were fabricated by a positivephotoresist process using iron oxide and chromium masks. Reproducible junctions were obtained with areas of 2 μm2. The diodes exhibit stable, highly nonlinear I–V characteristics. Several hundred diodes were printed on the same substrate with nonlinearity parameters varying less than 15%. Infrared rectification was tested with a stabilized 10.6 μm CO2 laser.
