Abstract: Herein, polycrystalline films of ZnSe which are coated onto Au substrates and recoated with amorphous layers of GeO2 are used as active material to perform as band stop filters. The stacked layers of Au/ZnSe/GeO2 are coated under pressure of 10−5 mbar. The device is characterized by X‐ray diffraction, X‐ray photoelectron, X‐ray fluorescence and impedance spectroscopy techniques. It was observed that when the device is contacted with carbon point contacts, it exhibit resonance‐antiresonance phenomena near 1.0 GHz. The Au/ZnSe/GeO2/C devices display negative capacitance effect in the frequency domain of 0.96‐1.80 GHz. Analyses of the conductivity and capacitance spectra in the frequency domain of 0.01‐1.80 GHz, revealed the domination of conduction by quantum mechanical tunneling below 0.58 GHz and by the correlated barriers hopping above 0.58 GHz. In addition, characterizations of the impedance, reflection coefficient, return loss (L r ) and voltage standing wave ratios (VSWR) spectra of the device indicated ideal band stop filter features. The notch frequency of the filter is 1.56 GHz. At this critical frequency the Au/ZnSe/GeO2/C devices display ideal characteristics presented by VSWR of 1.0, Lr value of 28.9 dB. These features make the Au/ZnSe/GeO2/C heterojunction devices promising for use in telecommunication technology.
