Magnetoresistance in Sn-Doped In2 O3 Nanowires


In this work, we present transport measurements of individual Sn-doped In2O3 nanowires as a function of temperature and magnetic field. The results showed a localized character of the resistivity at low temperatures as evidenced by the presence of a negative temperature coefficient resistance in temperatures lower than 77 K. The weak localization was pointed as the mechanism responsible by the negative temperature coefficient of the resistance at low temperatures.
