Epitaxial Si/CoSi2/Si structures can be grown under ultra-high vacuum conditions. The metallic CoSi2 films can be extremely thin, typically between 1 nm and 20 nm. The electrical properties of these heterostructures are presented, mainly the transport of electrons in the metallic films parallel to the interfaces and the transfer of electrons through the metal film. The influence of pinholes in the CoSi2 layers will be discussed.
