The effects of Schottky-ohmic separation length on the capacitance and ac resistance of Al-p-Si Schottky barrier diodes in planar configuration have been studied. It has been found that the capacitance of such devices depends upon the Schottky-ohmic separation length. While the variation of the capacitance with Schottky-ohmic separation length shows a decreasing trend at all measurement frequencies, the ac resistance of the device remains almost constant at high frequency though some nonlinearity with respect to Schottky-ohmic separation length has been noticed at lower frequencies. The dependence of the capacitance of the device with Schottky-ohmic separation length is analyzed and empirical relations are obtained by fitting the experimental data by linear trend lines.
