Ru2Si3silicide was prepared in two different ways: (i) through a deposition (D) from a Ru2Si3sputtering target and (ii) via a solid state reaction (SSR) of ruthenium thin film with silicon to form a rectifying structure silicide/silicon. Both types of silicides were treated at 700 °C in nitrogen ambient for 5 min in order to facilitate crystallization and solid state reaction, respectively. Transmission electron microcopy (TEM), x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and Raman spectroscopy were applied to study structural, compositional and chemical properties of the two types of silicides.
