Non-linear Bioelectronic Element: Schottky Effect and Electrochemistry
Angelica Cifarelli, ALice Dimonte, Tatiana Berzina and Victor Erokhin
Asymmetric electrical contact (gold and indium) was performed to the slime mold. Electrical characterization of such structure revealed rectifying behavior due to the Schottky effect and a hysteresis due to the electrochemical activity within the slime mold.
