Abstract

Abstract A review is presented in which existing theories of the formation of Schottky barriers are analyzed. The list includes macroscopic dielectric approaches and various microscopic quantum mechanical treatments. The central role of interface states and their different physical origins are assessed. Simple concepts, able to predict general trends in barrier heights, are examined along with detailed microscopic theories applied to individual contacts.
