Title: Electrolyte Gated Oxides

Abstract

Electrolyte gating has the potential to generate electric fields at the surface of materials in the 107-108 V/cm range and induce charge carriers in these materials up to 1014-1015 cm-2, making this technique very attractive for studying complex and functional oxides. Several types of processes — notably including proton diffusion and intake — can occur during charging, which makes it crucially important to consider and understand exactly how a given material is interacting with an electrolyte. We report on several of these mechanisms and how to distinguish between them.
