A film of deposited on thermally grown was studied to determine the subthreshold voltage stability. Long‐term reliability results have indicated the presence of more than one mechanism causing the subthreshold degradation. The two mechanisms are identified as electron tunneling and lateral migration of the ions along the surface of the device. This book presents a unified view of the rapidly growing field of scanning tunneling microscopy and its many derivatives. After examining novel scanning-probe techniques and the instrumentation and methods, the book provides detailed accounts of STM applications.

Variability control over the resistive switching process is one of the key requirements to improve the performance stability of the resistive random access memory (RRAM) devices. In this study, we show the improvement of the variability of the resistive switching operation in the TiOx/Al2O3 bilayer RRAM devices. The achievement is based on the thickness engineering of the Al2O3 by:
A number of effects in metal/(tunnel-thin SiO2)/p +-Si structures associated with electron tunneling from the valence band of bulk Si into a metal have been studied. The tunneling occurs through two successively arranged tunnel-transparent barriers: that of the depleted space charge region in Si and the SiO2 barrier, with the possible intermediate involvement of a quantum well formed by the Cited by: 3. The steady-state growth results from the balance between the field-enhanced oxide dissolution at the oxide/electrolyte interface at the base of the hemispherical-shaped pores where the electric field is high enough to propel the Al 3+ ions through the barrier layer and the oxide growth at the metal/oxide interface resulting from the migration Cited by:

Until now, we have been discussing reaction rates on a somewhat phenomenological basis. In this lecture, we will become much more fundamental, and merge our analysis of reaction rates with quantum mechanics.
