Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As interest in extending the life span and living a healthy life increases, technologies of bioelectronics are actively discussed and studied today. The development of flexible electronics and wireless communication system accelerates the human-machine interaction and wearable electronics to discover strange symptoms by oneself.

Using transparent conductive film and flexible polymers, research of artificial skin and attachable electronics device are carried out operating without batteries. The elastomer actuator which expand and shrink by the high output voltage signal is emerged in the recent research. Additionally, this bioelectronics can be applied to numerous applications of artificial muscles, electroactive polymers, healthcare sensors, and smart actuators.

This Special Issue focuses on the smart materials for bioelectronics such as human-machine interaction device and wearable electronic device.

Facile Process for Surface Passivation Using (NH4)2S for the InP MOS Capacitor with ALD Al2O3

Abstract
Ammonium sulfide ((NH4)2S) was used for the passivation of an InP (100) substrate and its conditions were optimized. The capacitance–voltage (C–V) characteristics of InP metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) capacitors were analyzed by changing the concentration of and treatment time with (NH [...] Read more.
Ammonium sulfide ((NH4)2S) was used for the passivation of an InP (100) substrate and its conditions were optimized. The capacitance–voltage (C–V) characteristics of InP metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) capacitors were analyzed by changing the concentration of and treatment time with (NH4)2S. It was found that a 10% (NH4)2S treatment for 10 min exhibits the best electrical properties in terms of hysteresis and frequency dispersions in the depletion or accumulation mode. After the InP substrate was passivated by the optimized (NH4)2S, the results of x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and the extracted interface trap density (Dit) proved that the growth of native oxide was suppressed.
