Graphene-semiconductor contacts exhibit rectifying properties and, in this respect, they behave in exactly the same way as a “conventional” metal-semiconductor or Schottky contacts. It will be demonstrated that, as often assumed, the Schottky-Mott rule does not describe the reported barrier heights of graphene-semiconductor contacts. With “conventional” Schottky contacts, the same conclusion was reached already in 1940. The physical reason is that the Schottky-Mott rule considers no interaction between the metal and the semiconductor. The barrier heights of “conventional” Schottky contacts were explained by the continuum of metal-induced gap states (MIGSs), where the differences of the metal and semiconductor electronegativities describe the size and the sign of the intrinsic electric-dipoles at the interfaces. It is demonstrated that the MIGS-and-electronegativity concept unambiguously also explains the experimentally observed barrier heights of graphene
Schottky contacts. This conclusion includes also the barrier heights reported for MoS2
Schottky contacts with “conventional” metals as well as with graphene.
