Abstract

In this work p - ZnO / n - GaN heterojunction diodes were directly formed on the Si substrate by a combination of cost-effective solgel spin-coating and thermal annealing treatment. Spin-coated n -ZnO films on InN/GaN/Si wafers were converted to p -type polarity after thermal treatment of proper annealing durations. X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis reveals that InN-codoped ZnO films have grown as the standard hexagonal wurtzite structure with a preferential orientation in the (002) direction. The intensity of the (002) peak decreases for a further extended annealing duration, indicating the greater incorporation of dopants, also confirmed by x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and low-temperature photoluminescence. Hall and resistivity measurements validate that our p -type ZnO film has a high carrier concentration of 3.73 × 10 17 cm 3 , a high mobility of 210 cm 2 / Vs , and a low resistivity of 0.079 Ωcm. As a result, the proposed p - ZnO / n - GaN heterojunction diode displays a well-behaving current rectification of a typical p - n junction, and the measured current versus voltage (I–V) characteristic is hence well described by the modified Shockley equation. The research on the fabrication of p - ZnO / n - GaN heterojunctions shown here generates useful advances in the production of cost-effective ZnO-based optoelectronic devices.
