    Various models have been developed to address the problem of ‘‘Fermi level pinning,’’ i.e., why the barrier height varies much less than the Schottky metal work function limit. The most widely accepted mechanism is some variant of the metal-induced gap state model....

    The article focuses on the study by Shin-ichi Ohkoshi and co-workers which shows that nanocrystalline transition-metal oxide can produce a photo reversible metal-semiconductor phase transition at room temperature by short wave-length light irradiation. It states that if a black metal γ-Ti3O5...

    We present a model that explains two phenomena, recently observed in high-mobility Si-MOS structures: (1) the strong enhancement of metallic conduction at low temperatures, T<2 K, and (2) the occurrence of a metal-insulator transition in the 2D electron system. Both effects are ascribed to the...

    In this paper, electron-doped La0.8Te0.2MnO3 film has been prepared on SrTiO3 (100) substrate by pulsed laser deposition method, and the photoinduced resistivity change and colossal magnetoresistance effect have been investigated. The results show that the film has a high metal-insulator...

    We studied the transport and magnetic properties of low-doped manganite films after different oxygenation processes. The oxygen content was adjusted by postdeposition annealing at different oxygen pressures and annealing times. For all the samples we observed an increase in the Curie temperature...

    We report the observation of quantum growth behavior in a metal-on-insulator system. Using insulating substrates, with their large band gaps, should maximize quantum confinement effects. In a study of Pb film growth and thermal processing on sapphire, we have observed robust preferred island...

    Magnetic and transport properties of SrRuO3 film grown on SrTiO3 at different substrate temperatures have been investigated. Metallic behavior over the temperature range from 5 to 300 K is observed in the film grown at 750 °C. With a decrease in the growth temperature, a metal-insulator...

    Control over electron transport at scales that are comparable to the Fermi wavelength or mean-free path can lead to a variety of electronic devices.

    Metastable perovskite SrxTiyOz (STO) films were formed over a wide composition range by crystallization of layers grown by atomic layer deposition. An expansion of the lattice, decrease in permittivity and mild increase in band gap are observed with increasing Sr content. Sr-rich films...
