Abstract: In this work, the design and optical and electrical properties of MgO/GaSe heterojunction devices are reported and discussed. The device was designed using 0.4-mu m-thick n-type GaSe as substrate for a 1.6-mu m-thick p-type MgO optoelectronic window. The device was characterized by means of ultraviolet-visible optical spectrophotometry in the wavelength region from 200 nm to 1100 nm, current-voltage (I-V) characteristics, impedance spectroscopy in the range from 1.0 MHz to 1.8 GHz, and microwave amplitude spectroscopy in the frequency range from 1.0 MHz to 3.0 GHz. Optical analysis of the MgO/GaSe heterojunction revealed enhanced absorbing ability of the GaSe below 2.90 eV with an energy bandgap shift from 2.10 eV for the GaSe substrate to 1.90 eV for the heterojunction design. On the other hand, analysis of I-V characteristics revealed a tunneling-type device conducting current by electric field-assisted tunneling of charged particles through a barrier with height of 0.81 eV and depletion region width of 670 nm and 116 nm when forward and reverse biased, respectively. Very interesting features of the device are observed when subjected to alternating current (ac) signal analysis. In particular, the device exhibited resonance-antiresonance behavior and negative capacitance characteristics near 1.0 GHz. The device quality factor was similar to 10(2). In addition, when a small ac signal of Bluetooth amplitude (0.0 dBm) was imposed between the device terminals, the power spectra of the device displayed tunable band-stop filter characteristics with maximum notch frequency of 1.6 GHz. The energy bandgap discontinuity, the resonance-antiresonance behavior, the negative capacitance features, and the tunability of the electromagnetic power spectra at microwave frequencies nominate the Ag/MgO/GaSe/Al device as a promising optoelectronic device for use in multipurpose operations at microwave frequencies.
