1. Crystal Properties and Growth of Semiconductors Electrical behavior of solids Arrangement of atoms 1.1. Semiconductor Materials Electrical conductivity intermediate between metals and insulators
1 What distinguishes semiconductors? resistance/resistivity crystalline structure The resistance of a bar of material with dimensions L, W, t: W L R Wt
t L Resistivity is: metals: < 10-3-cm insulators: >102-cm semiconductors: 10-3-cm < < 102-cm 2
Figure 1: Electrical conductivities of some common materials. 3 *Conductivity of semiconductor material can be varied over orders of magnitude by changes in -temperature -optical excitation -impurity content Periodic table: Column IV Si, Ge Elemental semiconductors
III-V Compound semiconductors example:GaAs II-VI Compound semiconductors example:CdTe 4 The Portion of Periodic Table Where Semiconductors Occur 5 Binary compounds: GaAs, GaP, GaN, CdTe, InP etc. Ternary compounds: AlGaAs, GaAsP, HgCdTe, etc. Quaternary compounds: InGaAsP, AlGaInAs,etc.
Polycrystalline (a) Crystalline Polycrystalline (b) Amorphous (c) 7 The atoms making up the CRYSTAL are arranged in a periodic fashion called
LATTICE. UNIT CELL is a representative of the entire lattice and is generally repeated throughout the structure. PRIMITIVE CELL is the smallest unit cell that can be repeated to form the lattice. Crystal lattice determines: Density of solid (mechanical property) Allowed energy bands of electrons (electrical property). 8 Cubic Lattices
Top view Diamond lattice is an FCC plus placing atoms a, a, a (in x, y and z direction) from each atom in the FCC. Construction of a diamond lattice from two interpenetrating FCC sublattices. 10 Diamond Lattice of Si from Different Angles of View
11 *Diamond (zincblende) lattice - typical of most of the commonly used semiconductors. *Characteristic of Si, Ge, III-V compounds. *Possible to vary the composition of alloy by choosing the fraction of numbers of the atoms, par example: AlxGa1-xAs (x % of Al, (1-x)% of Ga) InxGa1-xAsyP1-y 12
Conclusion Atomic arrangement in certain planes in crystal is important to many of the mechanical, metallurgical, and chemical properties of the material. Crystals cleaved along certain atomic
planes, resulting in exeptionally planar surfaces Chemical reactions-etching of a crytal often take place preferentially along certain directions 13
