In this work, I-V characteristics of Al/p-Si Schottky (SD) diode were measured in the temperature range of 178-440 K. Obtained data were analyzed a Gaussian distribution of the barrier height (BH). It has been concluded that the temperature dependence of the forward I-V characteristics of the Schottky barrier diodes can be explained on the basis of thermionic emission (TE) mechanism with a Gaussian distribution of the barrier heights.
