Abstract

A thorough treatment of Schottky (metal–semiconductor) diodes, MIS (metal–insulator–semiconductor) diodes and (bipolar) pn-diodes is given, focussing on suitable materials, the formation of space charge layers and the forward and reverse current–voltage characteristics. Applications of such devices based on their rectifying properties are discussed.
