interfacial layer

interfacial layer

[‚in·tər¦fā·shəl ′lā·ər]
(physical chemistry)
A one- or two-molecules-thick boundary between any two bulk phases (gas, liquid, or solid) in contact where the properties differ from the properties of the bulk phases.

As is known, due to thermodynamic instability, an interfacial layer is inevitably grown between the Si substrate and the high-k layer [14].
A large amount of Ca[(OH).sub.2] in the interfacial layer was consumed by secondary pozzolanization to produce lots of CSH gel and reduce the amount of large crystal lattices of Ca[(OH).sub.2] crystals and Aft.
We try to identify the critical interfacial layer, i.e., which interface is the most influential on the properties of the RTD.
The functional performance of these systems can be controlled by engineering the composition and structure of the interfacial layer coating the lipid droplets.

These substrates bring diamond to within less than a micron of the gate junction by growing the diamond on a 30-nm-thick interfacial layer at the GaN buffer.
However, high-k-specific issues remain with regard to mobility degradation, compatibility with metal gate, and threshold voltage instabilities associated with defects, traps, and charges inside the high-k layers and Si[O.sub.2] interfacial layer [1-3].
In this device the interfacial layer is taken to be a wide gap insulator (Si[O.sub.2]) which acts as a tunneling barrier to the transport of carrier from one side to the other.
