Experiment Overview (image) Institute for Basic Science Share Print E-Mail Caption a) Principle of detecting hot electrons during hydrogen peroxidebdecomposition on a metal/n-Si nanodiode. The basic process involves 1) excitation of a hot electron followed by 2) ballistic transport across the metal-semiconductor contact. b) Typical current-voltage curves measured on the metal/n-Si nanodiodes with Pt, Ag, and Au catalytic films.
