ab-initio study on Schottky-Barrier modulation in NiSi<inf>2</inf>/Si interface


Interface morphology dependent Schottky Barrier Height (SBH) and its modulation by substitutional dopants in NiSi<sub>2</sub>/Si interface have been investigated using density functional theory. An accurate band gap of Si was estimated by employing meta-GGA exchange correlation functional. We show that the SBH for electrons (in n-type semiconductor) is… (More)
