Abstract
Schottky barrier heights may be modified by means of shallow ion implantation. In this paper, a numerical method is presented to calculate effective barrier heights for metal-semiconductor contacts with arbitrary doping profiles. Thermionic current, image force lowering and tunneling current are considered. The transmission (tunneling) coefficient is computed by numerical solution of Schrodinger's equation and wave function matching at boundaries. A metal-germanium contact test case is investigated. This scheme may be applicable to practical implant conditions where dopant redistribution is significant.
