ABSTRACT
Metal–insulator–metal junctions were fabricated with insulating barriers of solid Xe. The current–voltage characteristics of these junctions when unshorted were consistent with tunneling theory. The fabrication of junctions with solid inert gas solid insulating barriers may make it possible to carry out tunneling spectroscopy of complex compounds that are susceptible to chemical and mechanical damage. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
