Nanomaterials will serve as the foundation of future electronics, greatly improving efficiency and capabilities due to enhanced control of interfaces at the nanoscale. In this letter, the effect of various loading conditions on the transport characteristics of Au nanoparticle-SrTiO3 interfaces is investigated with an atomic force microscope in order to understand the effect and thus sensitivity of the interface to external stimuli. Two types of interfaces are identified-one robust against applied load and the other affected by small variations in load with improved performance with increased applied load.
