In this work, we report the fabrication and transport properties of sub-micron Hall devices to be used for nanomagnetic studies. Hall bars were fabricated using electron-beam lithography followed by wet etching of GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructures containing two-dimensional electron gas (2-DEG). Metallization using multiple metallic layers were used to achieve ohmic contacts with the 2-DEG which is about 240 nm below the surface. Detailed characterization of the metallic layers using X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) demonstrate the role of alloy formation and diffusion to form ohmic contacts with the 2-DEG. Electronic transport measurements show the metallic character of the 2-DEG. Hall effect and magnetoresistance were measured to estimate the carrier mobility of 4.2×104 cm2/V-s at 5 K in dark.
