Light-Induced Giant Capacitance Enhancement in LaAlO3/SrTiO3 Heterostructures
Increase in the gate capacitance of field-effect transistor structure based on LaAlO3/SrTiO3 heterostructure is particularly important to the development of optoelectronic device. Here, we demonstrate giant positive capacitance enhancement in LAO/STO-based capacitor devices under light illumination at room temperature. The enhancement increases with the incident sub-bandgap light power or photon energy. The capacitance enhancement could be contributed to modification of electrostatic screening length in STO. Under light illumination, the electrons photoexcited from the mid-gap energy states could increase the screening effect, leading to the reduction of effective capacitor thickness and thereby capacitance enhancement.
