Four Point Probe Theory

    Resistivity, Rho, is a particularly important semiconductor parameter because it can be related directly to the impurity content of a sample; The four point probe is the apparatus typically used to determine bulk resistivity.

  The mobility of the carriers depends upon temperature, crystal defect density, and ALL impurities present. Hall Effect Measurements can determine the mobility of the carriers in a given sample to allow for more accurate dopant concentration measurements, but Hall measurements are usually destructive to the sample.

  The four point probe contains four thin collinearly placed tungsten wires probes which are made to contact the sample under test. Current I is made to flow between the outer probes, and voltage V is measured between the two inner probes, ideally without drawing any current. If the sample is of semi-infinite volume and if the interprobe spacings are s1= s2 = s3 = s, then it can be shown that the resistivity of the semi-infinite volume is given by

Rhoo =(2 Pi s)V/I (1)

  The subscription in the preceding equation indicates the measured value of the resistivity and is equal to the actual value, Rho, only if the sample is of semi-infinite volume. Practical samples, of course, are of finite size. Hence, in general, Rho != Rhoo. Correction factors for six different boundary configurations have been derived by Valdes.(1) These show that in general if l, the distance from any probe to the nearest boundary, is at least 5s, no correction is required. For the cases when the sample thickness is <= 5s, we can compute the true resistivity from

Rho = a 2 Pi s V/I = a Rhoo (2)

  where a is the thickness correction factor which is plotted on page GT-2. From an examination of the plot we see that for values of t/s >= 5 the corresponding value of a is unity. Thus for samples whose thickness is at least 5 times the probe spacing, no correction factor is needed. Typical probe spacings are 25-60 mils and the wafers used in most cases are only 10-20 mils, so unfortunately we cannot ignore the correction factor. Looking again at the plot, however, we see that the curve is a straight line for values of t/s <= 0.5. Since it is a log-log plot the equation for the line must be of the form

a = K (t/s)^m (3)

  where K is the value of a at (t/s) = 1, and m is the slope. Inspection of the plot shows that in this case m = 1. K is determined to be 0.72 by extrapolating the linear region up to the value at (t/s) - 1. (The exact value can be shown to be 1/(2 ln 2).) Hence for slices equal to or less than one half the probe spacing

a = 0.72 t/s

When substituted into the basic equation we get:

Rho = a 2 Pi s V/I = 4.53t V/I , (t/s) <= 0.5 (4)

  All samples we will be using in the lab satisfy the one- half relationship so we can use the above formula to determine Rho. We will perform resistivity measurements on the starting material for each experiment. The value of r obtained will be referred to as the bulk resistivity, and the units are Ohm-cm.

If both sides of Equation (4) are divided by t we get

Rs = Rho/t = 4.53 V/I for t/s <= 0.5 (5)

  which we refer to as sheet resistance. When the thickness t is very small, as would be the case for a diffused layer, this is the preferred measurement quantity. Note that Rs is independent of any geometrical dimension and is therefore a function of the material alone. The significance of the sheet resistance can be more easily seen if we refer to the end-to- end resistance of a rectangular sample. From the familiar resistance formula

R = Rho l/wt (6)

we see that if w = l (a square) we get

R = Rho/t = Rs.

  Therefore, Rs may be interpreted as the resistance of a square sample, and for this reason the units of Rs are taken to be ohms-per-square or ohm/sq. Dimensionally this is the same as ohms but this notation serves as a convenient reminder of the geometrical significance of sheet resistance.

  So far in our discussion of resistivity measurements we have assumed that the size of our sample is large compared to the probe spacing so that edge effects could be ignored. This is usually the case for the bulk resistivity measurement. However, our sheet resistance measurements will be made on a "test area" on our wafer and the test area dimensions (nominally 2.9 by 5.8mm) are not that large compared to the probe spacing (25 mils). In order to get accurate measurements we will need to correct for the edge effects.

In general then

Rs = C V/I (7)

where C is the correction factor.

Note that for d/s > 40, C = 4.53, the value we had as the multiplier in Equation (5).
