The Technology

Some insulating oxides can form conducting interfaces. These interfaces consist of a high-density of electrons roughly confined to a 2-dimensional layer (often referred to as 2DEGs) between two insulators, and it can possess unusual electrical properties. These conducting interfaces are potentially useful for several types of electronic devices, ranging from transistors to chemical and optical sensors. The common approaches for creating such conducting interfaces are expensive and complicated (oxide epitaxy) which limit the practicality of such implementations of conductive oxide interfaces.

This technology offers a simple, scalable and robust process for forming oxide 2DEGs, a building block of oxide electronics.
