Abstract

Using a dual-probe scanning tunneling microscope, we have performed three-terminal ballistic electron emission spectroscopy on Au/GaAs(100) by contacting the patterned metallic thin film with one tip and injecting ballistic electrons with another tip. The collector current spectra agree with a Monte-Carlo simulation based on modified planar tunneling theory. Our results suggest that it is possible to study nanoscale metal-semiconductor interfaces without the requirement of an externally-contacted continuous metal thin film.
