""We report on the fabrication process of suspended anodes implemented in Schottky-diode devices on epitaxial Ge. An air-bridge technique based on reactive ion etching in SF(6) was developed in order to release the Schottky contact bridge, ensuring higher control respect to wet etching. Metal-semiconductor junctions in the sub-micron range with rectifying behaviour have been obtained. The present fabrication process can be extended as is to the use of silicon on insulator substrates. (C) 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.""
