In this work we present data from a novel p-type metal-base transistor with common-base gain alpha similar to 1, fabricated at ambient temperature and pressure by electrodepositing sequentially on a p-type Si collector, a Co base and a Cu2O emitter. The high gain and the dependence of potential between emitter and base (V-EB) on the potential between collector and base (V-CB) when the emitter current (I-E) is held constant both suggest that the device functions as a natural permeable base transistor for very thin metal bases.
