Cr+Au and Ag Schottky diodes were prepared on n-type InP by using HF or Na2S+HF surface treatment for zero bias microwave detector purposes. The diodes were studied by current-voltage and capacitance-voltage measurements in the temperature range of 80-320K. The obtained I-V barrier heights were in the range of 0.38-0.49eV with ideality factors of 1.08-1.24. The peculiarities of the current-voltage characteristics are interpreted in terms of the thermionic emission, the thermionic-field emission, and the field emission current mechanisms.
