The thermal stability of the Cu/Cr/Ge/Pd/n +-GaAs contact structure was evaluated. In this structure, a thin 40 nm layer of chromium was deposited as a diffusion barrier to block copper diffusion into GaAs. After thermal annealing at 350°C, the specific contact resistance of the copper-based ohmic contact Cu/Cr/Ge/Pd was measured to be (5.1 ± 0.6) × 10 -7 Ω cm 2. Diffusion behaviors of these films at different annealing temperatures were characterized by metal sheet resistance, X-ray diffraction data, Auger electron spectroscopy, and transmission electron microscopy. The Cu/Cr/Ge/Pd contact structure was very stable after 350°C annealing. However, after 400°C annealing, the reaction of copper with the underlying layers started to occur and formed Cu 3Ga, Cu 3As, Cu 9Ga 4, and Ge 3Cu phases due to interfacial instability and copper diffusion.
