Metal-insulator-metal configuration of LaTiO3/SrTiO3 and LaAlO3/SrTiO3 hetero-structures between two dimensional electron gas formed at the interface and different area top electrodes is employed for Conductive Atomic force microscopy (CAFM) imaging, Current-Voltage (I-V), and Capacitance-Voltage (C-V) spectroscopy. Electrode area dependent I-V characteristics are observed for these oxide hetero-structures. With small area electrodes, rectifying I-V characteristics are observed, compared to, both tunneling and leakage current characteristics for large area electrodes. CAFM mapping confirmed the presence of pinholes on both surfaces. Resultant I-V characteristics have a contribution from both tunneling and leakage due to pinholes.
