By imposing an ultrathin insulator between low-work function metals and silicon, the Schottky barrier of the junction can be substantially reduced, decreasing junction resistance. With this approach, low-Schottky-barrier metal source/drain (S/D) transistors with Mg and Yb as S/D metals are demonstrated.
