Title: Electron Transmission Through NiSi2-Si Interfaces
Published: January 01, 1989
Abstract: Calculations of electron transmission through epitaxial NiSi2/Si(111) interfaces illustrate the versatality of a newloy developed first-principles technique. The transmission is poor and very dependent on the interface structure; of the electrons of primary importance for transport, more than 50% are reflected by the type-A orientation interface and more than 80% by the type B.
