Abstract

A new simple model for electron tunnel injection into oxides has been proposed, alternative to the conventional Fowler-Nordheim expression. The latter fails to predict oscillations in the current-voltage curves in ultra-thin oxides, due to the limits of the WKB approximation. Our model nicely fits the experimental I-V results and can be used to investigate ultra-thin film characteristics. Finnaly, we propose an empirical law correlating oxide thickness to I-V oscillation period.
