Abstract or Summary
  • The theoretical characteristics of space-charge-limited currents in solids are reviewed, and a survey of suitable dielectric materials and experimental space-charge-limited devices is presented. The properties of the gold-silicon contact as used in space-charge-limited devices were experimentally investigated. It was found that the observed characteristics could be explained on the basis that the gold diffuses far enough into the silicon under fabrication temperatures to set up a region of traps, which reduces the space-charge-limited component of current to a very low value. An attempt to fabricate planar space-charge-limited triodes using silicon as the dielectric and gold as the source and drain contacts was unsuccessful.
