"SCHOTTKY: Researchers demostrate tunable Schottky barrier, aim for ferroelectric"
Ferroelectric transistors�ultra-small gateless two-terminal junctions between semiconductor and oxide�switch by reversing the polarity of their junction. This is the region where semiconductors are tuned for a single wavelength in a laser diode. But because the region's actions are not well understood, no one has successfully stabilized the ferroelectric transistor. There was a tool missing. Now researchers are creating a model of the Schottky barrier in hopes of finding that missing tool. They said the work could lead to smaller, faster computers.
