We report on electronic transport measurements on polycrystalline, nonmetallic samples of LaMnO3+δ, in the Ohmic and non-Ohmic regimes. The non-Ohmic regime has been investigated using single current pulses of short duration. The large nonlinearity of the pulsed I-V characteristics is probably of the same origin as that of the nonmetallicity of LaMnO3+δ, that is, disorder introduced by Mn vacancies. The dc I-V characteristics, under similar fields, show much larger nonlinearity and hysteresis, typical of self-heating in samples with activated conductivity.

    Heterostructure contacts p+-PbTe/p-CdTe were prepared using the hot-wall technique on glassceramic substrates. It has been shown that the potential barrier at the p+-PbTe/p-CdTe interface is not formed in the case of heavily doped lead telluride. That allows one to create ohmic heterocontacts of...

    To achieve very low ohmic contact resistance, an n+-GaN layer was selectively deposited using plasma-assisted molecular beam epitaxy (PAMBE). During this process polycrystalline GaN grew on the patterned SiO2 region, which was subsequently removed by a heated KOH solution, resulting in damage to...
