Nitride semiconductor device

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #7795738.

A nitride semiconductor device with a p electrode having no resistance between itself and other electrodes, and a method of manufacturing the same are provided. A p electrode is formed of a first Pd film, a Ta film, and a second Pd film, and on a p-type contact layer of a nitride semiconductor. On the second Pd film, a pad electrode is formed. The second Pd film is formed on the entire upper surface of the Ta film which forms part of the p electrode, and serves as an antioxidant film that prevents oxidation of the Ta film. Preventing oxidation of the Ta film, the second Pd film can reduce the resistance that may exist between the p electrode and the pad electrode, thereby preventing a failure in contact between the p electrode and the pad electrode and providing the p electrode with low resistance.
