ABSTRACT
SrRuO3 (SRO), a conducting transition metal oxide, is commonly used for engineering domains in BiFeO3. Oxide devices can be envisioned by integrating SRO with an oxide semiconductor as Nb doped SrTiO3 (Nb:STO). Using a three-terminal device configuration, we study vertical transport in a SRO/Nb:STO device at the nanoscale and find local differences in transport which originate due to the high selectivity of SRO growth on the underlying surface terminations in Nb:STO. This causes a change in the interface energy band characteristics and is explained by the differences in the spatial distribution of the interface-dipoles at the local Schottky interface.

    Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have many potential applications, while the performances of TMDs are generally limited by the less surface active sites and the poor electron transport efficiency. Here, a novel three-dimensional (3D) structure of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) with larger...

    While atomic vibrations dominate thermal conduction in the amorphous and face-centered cubic phases of Ge2Sb2Te5, electrons dominate in the hexagonal closed-packed (hcp) phase. Here we separate the electron and phonon contributions to the interface and volume thermal resistances for the three...

    We report electron transport measurements from gold-zinc-porphyrin-gold molecular junctions formed in an electromigrated nanogap. Asymmetric current-voltage (I-V) behaviors about the zero bias voltage were observed at room temperature and 4.2 K. These observations are in contrast to measurements...

    Electronic structures of LaFe1-xNixO3 (x<=0.6) have been studied by x-ray absorption near edge structure spectra of O K, Fe L2,3 and La M4,5 edges. Upon substitution of Ni at Fe site in LaFeO3, the O K-edge spectra show a feature about 2.0 eV lower than that of LaFeO3. This feature is growing as...
