Title: Demonstration of AlN-based Vertical p-n Diodes with Dopant-Free Distributed Polarization Doping

Abstract: Nearly ideal vertical p-n diodes are demonstrated on the AlN platform. Distributed polarization doping (DPD) – a novel doping technology based on the polarization effect in III-Nitride materials – was utilized to overcome the major bottleneck in AlN-based devices: the control of conductivity. The fabricated devices exhibited record electrical properties, including a desired effective doping concentration, a low turn-on voltage (6.5 V), a low on-resistance (3 mΩ cm2), and a high breakdown electric field (7.3 MV/cm). These results highlight the effectiveness of DPD for AlN-based devices, along with the great potential of “semiconducting” AlN as a material for power device applications.
