Abstract:

Electron transport across individual Si nanochains and silicide nanochains is investigated using a micro-manipulator in a transmission electron microscope. The current increases nonlinearly with increasing the bias voltage. Electrical breakdowns occur with a current typically as large as 101–102 nA. Furthermore, some FN plots exhibit a bend presumably due to the formation of a heavily distorted nanotube of carbon.
