Quantitative study of the electronic characteristics of metal-metal oxides nanowires contacts

Abstract

This proposal aims to study the electronic characteristics of metal-nanowire interfaces used in the definition of nanoscale devices, especially nanowires and nanobelts constructed from common metal oxides (SnO2, mainly). A singular point for these efforts is the definition of electrical contacts that allow access to the properties of the nanowires. The presence of surface disorder leading to the localization and charge redistribution is a factor that contributes decisively to the properties of the electrical contacts in the samples. Nevertheless, little experimental information on the formation of metal-semiconductor (nanowires) junctions are available and this research proposal intends to advance this area by synthesizing pure and doped SnO2 nanowires and investigate the transport characteristics in these samples and their relationship with the interface characteristics. As a contribution to the area it is expected to study the predominant transport mechanisms in metal-semiconductor heterojunctions considering the influence and source of interface states and non-uniformities in forming the Schottky barrier in these devices. The accumulated experience in manufacturing and studying metal oxides based nanostructured materials and the available infrastructure make the investment associated with this proposal remain low while the expected results can have a good impact on literature, if one takes into account the need for a quantitative study with respect to the formation of electrical contacts and their properties in nanowires.
