The Use Of Barrier Parameters For The Characterization Of Electron Tunneling Conductance Curves
Published 1978 · Chemistry
Abstract This paper deals with barrier parameters calculated from the coefficients of polynomial fits to electron tunneling conductance curves for a large sample of junctions with various types of barriers. Methods of data handling, along with a comparison of the results from two different parameter calculations are shown. Finally, relationships between the barrier parameters and other junction characteristics — particularly RA , the product of junction resistance with area (a simple and extremely useful parameter) — are discussed.
