Structural and electronic properties of the interface between the high-k Oxide LaAlO3 and Si(001).

The structural and electronic properties of the LaAlO(3)/Si(001) interface are determined using state-of-the-art electronic structure calculations. The atomic structure differs from previous proposals, but is reminiscent of La adsorption structures on silicon. A phase diagram of the interface stability is calculated as a function of oxygen and Al chemical… (More)
