Abstract: Herein, the structural, morphological, compositional, and electrical properties of SeO2 microwires are studied and analyzed. Microwires of SeO2 of dimensions of 460×30×30 (μm)3 are electrically characterized in the temperature range of 17-300 K. SeO2 microwires are observed exhibiting nano-crystalline structure relating to a tetragonal phase. The microwires contained excess oxygen leading to some Se vacancies. The current-voltage characteristics of the microwires displayed temperature dependent abrupt switching property revealing an “ON/OFF” current ratios of ∽90 at threshold voltage of 0.48 V at 300 K. These features of the microwires remained down to 250 K. In addition, the temperature dependent electrical resistivity measurement showed that the microwires perform as a degenerate (metal like) semiconductors with quadratic temperature dependence (ρ(T)∝T2). Moreover, impedance spectra analysis has shown that SeO2 microwires exhibit negative resistance and negative dielectric constant effects in the spectral ranges of 20-1800 MHz. The work here indicate that SeO2 microwires can perform much better than powders in pellets form or in thin film form. The resonance-antiresonance of dielectric constant and abrupt switching properties are accounted as remarkable features of the SeO2 microwires nominating them as abrupt electronic switches and signal amplifiers at workable in microelectronics.
