In this work we study the nonlinearity of the I-V characteristic of a MIM diode, as a source of information of its fundamental properties. While tunneling theory explains at least qualitatively the behavior of the high resistance contacts (R > 100 Ω), it falls short to explain the behavior of low resistance contacts. For low resistance contacts heating effects may become important.
