Ti/Pt/Au metallization on p-type GaN/AlxGa1-xN (x=0.10 and 0.20) superlattices (SL) were investigated as ohmic contacts. Current-voltage and specific contact resistance measurements indicate enhanced p-type doping in the superlattice structures compared to that in GaN. Ti/Pt/Au is shown to be an effective ohmic metallization scheme on p-type GaN/Al xGa1-xN superlattices. A specific contact resistance of Rc = 4.6×10-4 Ω-cm2 is achieved for unalloyed Ti/Pt/Au on GaN/Al0.2Ga0.8N SL. This is reduced to 1.3×10-4 Ω-cm2 after annealing for 5 minutes at 300 °C.
