Unlike a conventional metal-Si compounds/Si structure, a thin film TiW alloy was deposited on PtSi/n-Si to form a diffusion barrier between aluminum (Al) and PtSi/n-Si. Dielectric properties and electrical conductivity of contact structures have been investigated in detail by using experimental C-V and G-V mea, surements in the frequency range of 3 kHz-5 MHz and voltage range of -2-4 V. Experimental results indicate that the values of epsilon' show a steep decrease with increasing frequency for each voltage. On the other hand, the values of epsilon '' versus voltage curves show a jump, and epsilon '' decreases with decreasing voltage and increasing frequency.
