Özet

The current-voltage (I-V) characteristics of Polypyrrole(PPy)/p-Si/Al structure have been investigated as a function of temperature. A modified Norde function combined with conventional forward I-V method has been used to extract the junction parameters including the ideality factor. barrier height and series resistance. Norde function has been compared with the Cheung functions and it has been seen that there is a good agreement with both method for the barrier height values. However, the values of series resistance have very different especially towards to the lower temperatures. This is attributed to non-ideal I-V characteristics of the Au/PPy/p-Si/Al structure and non-pure Thermionic emission theory due to the low temperature effects. (C) 2009 Elsevier B.V.
