Title: Theory of Ballistic Electron Emission Spectroscopy of NiSi2/Si(111) Interfaces
Published: January 01, 1992
Abstract: We discuss theoretical calculations of ballistic electron emission microscopy spectra for A- and B-type NiSi2-Si(111) interfaces. The calculations are based on a first-principles computation of the transmission across the interfaces and a model calculation of the electrons tunneling from the tip. We compare the calculated spectra with existing experimental data and discuss a way of presenting experimental data that highlights the transmission process with respect to contributions from the tunneling distribution
