Title: HIGH RESOLUTION SCANNING RF PROBE FOR SEMICONDUCTOR ELECTRICCONDUCTIVITY MEASUREMENTS
Agency: NSF
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $40,000.00
 

Abstract:

ELECTRIC CONDUCTIVITY AND EXCESS CARRIER LIFETIME ARE TWO OFTHE MOST IMPORTANT PARAMETERS THAT DETERMINE THE PERFORMANCEOF SEMICONDUCTOR MATERIALS FOR APPLICATION AS PHOTODETECTORS. THE ABILITY TO OBTAIN NON-DESTRUCTIVE, HIGH RESOLUTION MEASUREMENTS OF THESE CHARACTERISTICS IS ONEOF THE BASIC PROBLEMS IN THE DEVELOPMENT AND FABRICATION OF SUCH MATERIALS. A TECHNIQUE TO MEASURE THE CONDUCTIVITY BASED ON SCANNING THE SAMPLES WITH A RF PROBE CAPABLE OF SPATIAL RESOLUTION OF A FEW MICRONS IS PROPOSED. BY MEASURING THE DECAY OF THE CONDUCTIVITY FOLLOWING EXCITATION BY A LIGHT PULSE, THE EXCESS CARRIER LIFETIME CAN ALSO BE DETERMINED. A PROGRAM TO DETERMINE THE LIMITINGSENSITIVITY AND RESOLUTION BY TWO VARIATIONS OF THE BASIC APPROACH IS PROPOSED FOR THE PHASE I EFFORT.
