App note(PDF) on schottky rectifiers from Microsemi.

Schottky rectifiers have been used for over 25 years in the power supply industry. The primary advantages are very low forward voltage drop and switching speed that approach zero time making them ideal for output stages. This latter feature has also stimulated their additional use in very high frequency applications including very low power involving signal and switching diode requirements of less than 100 picoseconds.
