    The enhanced electron injection of silicon-rich oxide (SRO)/SiO2 interfaces is explained. We find an excellent fit to the current-voltage characteristics of these interfaces by calculating the field enhancement over the surface of oblate spheroids in a uniform applied field. This explains why...
