This paper describes the changes in morphology of microscopically textured germanium as a function of the fabrication parameters. A technique of sputtering aluminum from the upper electrode to provide uniform mask formation over the surface is described. This process allows fabrication of much larger area textured surfaces than was possible using previous techniques.
