In this study, we have analyzed the Au/ZnO single nanowire based Schottky diode by investigating temperature dependent current voltage and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) measurements. The calculated barrier height of the Schottky diodes by using the thermionic emission model is in good agreement with the value obtained from the XPS measurements but lower than the theoretically predicted value. The ionization of interface states has been considered for explaining this discrepancy.
