Title
(EN) Rare-earth schottky diode structure
Abstract
(EN)

A method for forming a Schottky diode structure is disclosed. The method includes the steps of: a) Providing a substrate; b) forming a rare-earth containing layer over the substrate; and c) forming a metal layer over the rare-earth containing layer. The Schottky diode structure with a rare-earth containing layer has the properties of high-temperature stability, high Schottky barrier height (SBH), and low reverse leakage current.
