Ge homojunctions were deposited by means of Metal Organic Vapour Phase Epitaxy (MOVPE) on Ge substrates at 550 C and 675 C, using AsH3 as n-type dopant. Gen/Gep, GaAsn/InGaPn/Gen/Gep and Gen/Gep/Gep structures were prepared and studied, where n and p identify the layer or substrate doping. Vertical mesa junctions were obtained on the above structures by using conventional photolithographic and evaporation techniques. The junctions were characterized by I-V measurements under dark and illumination conditions and by EBIC technique. It has been observed that the samples grown at lower temperature showed better rectifying I-V characteristics and light conversion efficiency while EBIC results may suggest that a high As diffusion is present in the samples grown at higher temperature.
