An interesting way to produce an UV sensor is integrating a diode and a transistor. However, if you want to fabricate this circuit without encapsulation, it's necessary use a blocking filter to prevent devices parameters change. Gallium oxide (Ga2O3) is an interesting material due its large bandgap of ~4.9 eV that makes it an ideal candidate for solar-blind devices and deep UV sensor. The ² phase of Ga2O3 is the most chemically, thermodynamically stable and because of that is the most used in the electronic devices applications. That material phase also presents great potential because its support high electrical field, which is advantageous for the reduction of device size and enhancement of the integration level of power modules. Our goal is to obtain ²-Ga2O3 films by thermal evaporation or spray pyrolysis of a precursor gallium acetylacetonate (Ga(acac)3), aiming it's applications as solar-blind transistor in a UV photodetector. For this we will characterize the film morphology, structure and optical properties. Also we will use the Schottky diode setup as device test to start the electrical characterization properties of the films. (AU)
