    Carbon nanotube Schottky diodes were fabricated using asymmetric metal-nanotube contacts. These devices were prepared from semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes contacted by one Al or Ti electrode and one Au electrode. Nanotubes formed a low resistance contact with the Au electrode and a...

    The Au/ZnO Schottky contacts fabricated using H2O2-treated unintentionally doped ZnO epilayers showed an abnormal behavior in their transport properties; i.e., the background carrier density-dependent trade-off relation between the barrier height and the ideality factor was observed. This result...
