The goal of this project is to investigate the materials science of NbNbOx bilayers as substrates for MIM metal-insulator-metal diodes, where NbOx consists of 3-5 nm self-limiting native niobium oxide plus a precisely-controlled thickness of Nb2O5. The proposed bilayers will be also be investigated by our collaborators US Army NSRDEC and MIT Lincoln Laboratory, who study the device physics and materials science of MIMdiodes. To understand structure-performance relationships, a variety of bilayer samples with different thickness andor interfacial parameters will be fabricated and tested. Our development of the anodic oxidation technique for NbNbOx bilayer synthesis provides the control needed for these careful structural studies.
