|Abstract:||In this work, we present an investigation of the Ag-PPP (polyparaphenylene) interface using ballistic electron emission microscopy. Our work is the first successful application of the BEEM technique to metal-organic interfaces. We observe nanometre scale injection inhomogeneities. They have an electronic origin, since we find corresponding Schottky barrier variations. We also determine the transmission function of the Ag-PPP interface and find that it agrees qualitatively with the theoretical calculations for a metal-phenyl ring interface. We conclude that charge transport across inhomogeneous barriers needs to be considered to understand electronic transport across metal-organic interfaces and organic device characteristics.|
