Coulomb blockade effects in anodically oxidized titanium wires
2000 (English)In: Journal of Applied Physics, ISSN 0021-8979, E-ISSN 1089-7550, Vol. 88, no 11, 6549-6553 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
We investigate the electrical transport properties of narrow titanium (Ti) wires which are anodically oxidized through a resist mask. At temperatures below 1.2 K the current-voltage characteristics of the resulting Ti/TiOx nanostructures exhibit a zero-current state, characteristic of the Coulomb blockade. The blockade region can be modulated by a capacitively coupled gate electrode. The observed experimental features can be explained in terms of a single electron tunneling model of a multi-island device.
