In this letter, we report the experimental result indicating that the electrical conductivity in thin films of amorphous strontium titanate (a-STO) is well fit to the Meyer-Neldel (MN) rule over the temperature range 300-470 K. The films were ion-beam sputtered and annealed in two different atmospheres: a vacuum and flowing oxygen. The MN plots for the films show two parallel straight lines depending on the annealing atmosphere, which give the identical MN parameters of about 35 meV with the conductivity prefactors of 9.3x10[sup -10] and 2.3x10[sup -14](Ω cm)[sup -1] for the vacuum- and oxygen- annealed films, respectively. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
