Paper Abstract

The 1/f noise is a general phenomenon on physical systems. In this paper low-frequency noise of silicon crystal have been analyzed. Noise spectra can not be explained completely by a homogeneous band model of semiconductor. Therefore, we have developed a new tool, so called 'tunnel noise spectroscopy' permitting to localize a noise sources on the surface. Some applications of scanning tunnel microscopy and of reflection scanning near-field optical microscopy in the investigation of 1/f noise of the semiconductor surface coated by a thin gold film are also presented.
