AbstractElectrical breakdown at hydrogen/oxygen interfaces is limiting the use of nanoscaled diamond devices for the control of optically active defect centers. In this work electron transport across an oxygen-terminated potential barrier in a hydrogen-terminated surface conductive diamond is investigated. We analyze temperature-dependent current-voltage characteristics for different barrier widths and report on a reduced effective barrier height compared to theoretical expectations. This is ascribed to an inhomogeneous potential landscape, as observed by Kelvin probe and conductive force microscopy. Furthermore, we use photocurrent spectroscopy to discuss possible transport processes and identify a field dependent absorption feature. A defect state involved in transport across the barrier is proposed at the hydrogen-oxygen barrier approximately 1eV above the valence band maximum. The new understanding enabled by our work may help to overcome the current limitations of diamond surface electronics.
