Determine type of semiconductor from IV measurements of Schottky

  1. Feb 23, 2015 #1
    I was wondering if it would be possible to determine if a Schottky diode was n-type of p-type (in the bulk) by only using I-V measurements?

    Look for a detailed model of the diode in order to identify quantities related to the n- or p-type substrat, have a look at the wiki pages http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P–n_diode
    Probably one has to go beyond I-V measurements and measure also time dependent quantities.
