L64.00006. Influence of Temperature on LaAlO3/SrTiO3 Nanowire Lifetimes

Presented by: Aaron Greenberg


The discovery of a tunable 2DEG at the interface of LaAlO3/SrTiO3 has spurred interest in LaAlO3/SrTiO3, which exhibits numerous interesting properties. Using a conductive AFM lithography technique, we can create novel devices at the interface of LaAlO3/SrTiO3 by locally confining the 2DEG to zero or one dimension [1]. However, in ambient conditions, an appreciable degradation of device lifetime occurs [2]. Previously, the decay rate of such devices was characterized as a function of humidity and pressure; however, its dependence on temperature has yet to be determined. Here we describe experiments detailing efforts to quantify the device lifetimes as a function of temperature under otherwise ambient conditions, which will aid in the creation of new, more complex devices.
