±We have performed a detailed study of the barrier height of PtSi/p-Si Schottky diodes with thicknesses ranging from 25 to 200Å. The hole photocurrent was measured by using irradiation through cooled (70K) narrow band (▵λ : 0,14μm) irinterference filters in the spectral range from 3,0 to 5,4 μm. The photocurrent is analysed as a function of the reverse bias voltage to determine the barrier height by the Schottky effect. The flat band barrier is determined to (1)BFB = 0,257 eV ± 8 meV independent of PtSi thickness. The scatter due to fabrication processes (sputtering or evaporating of Pt and annealing) is only + 7meV. The temperature dependence of the barrier follows the temperature variation of the Si bandgap in the range 20 to 100K. The tight pinning of the barrier height and the photo-excitation process are discussed in the light of interface states at the PtSi-Si interface.
