We fabricated an Ag/Ga2O3 bilayer as a highly transparent conductive electrode for near-ultraviolet (NUV) light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The bilayer showed nonohmic characteristics because the as-deposited Ga2O3 film is an insulator. However, the bilayer thermally annealed in ambient air and N2 at 550°C for 1 min showed ohmic-like current-voltage characteristics including specific contact resistances of 3.06 × 10-2 and 7.34 × 10-2 Ω cm2, respectively. The optical transmittance and sheet resistance of the bilayer were about 91% and <42 Ω/□ at 380 nm. The results suggest that the Ag/Ga2O3 bilayer is suitable for application as a p-type electrode in NUV-LEDs.
