The investigation of thermal stability of WN x /GaAs Schottky contacts prepared by selective ion implantation of nitrogen into tungsten film has been demonstrated. Auger electron spectroscopy was used for characterization of thermal stability of the interfaces after rapid thermal annealing at 950 ‡C for 10s. Significant oxygen influence on migration of Ga atoms from the substrate into metallization systems was observed.
