The ferroelectric effect reduces the tunneling conductance compared to nonferroelectric BaTiO 3 due to the large decay rate of the Δ5 (p y and d yz) band. The TiO 2-terminated interface shows a better tunneling conductance than the BaO-terminated interface since electrons mainly transport through the Ti 3d-O p bonding state. Interfacial oxidation strongly reduces the conductance due to trapping of electrons and interfacial charge localization by additional O ions, while Nb doping enhances the conductance due to the delocalized distribution of charges on orbitals of the transport channel. Our studies provide a useful guide to practical applications of tunnel junctions with ferroelectric barriers. © 2012 American Physical Society.||Source Title:||Physical Review B - Condensed Matter and Materials Physics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/83145||ISSN:||10980121||DOI:||10.1103/PhysRevB.85.064105|
