Thermal stability, optical reflectivity, and contact resistivity of Pd/Ni/Al/Ti/Au ohmic contacts to p-type GaN were investigated. In contrast to its Pd/Al/Ti/Au counterparts, Pd/Ni/Al/Ti/Au contacts retained their specific contact resistivity (≪2×10-2 Ω cm2) and reflectivity (≫76%) after long-term annealing at 150 °C in nitrogen ambient. According to the results of the secondary ion mass spectroscopy study, it is suggested that the Ni layer prevents the penetration of Ti into GaN during thermal treatment.
