Abstract

The origin of the extremely large p-n junction leakage current which is due neither to generation-recombination current nor diffusion current is investigated. It is shown to be due to the local Zener effect, induced by the local enhancement of the electric field around precipitates in the depletion layer. A new approach to suppress this Zener effect by controlling the profile of the electric field is also proposed.
