Abstract

We address the problem of quantum transport in a nanometre sized two-terminal ZnO device subject to an external strain. The two junctions formed between the electrodes and the ZnO are generally taken as Ohmic and Schottky type, respectively. Unlike the conventional treatment to the piezopotential, w...
