We have explored the possibility of fabricating a metal base transistor in the Si/CoSi2 material system. Utilizing recent advances in the growth of thin, pinhole free, CoSi2 layers on Si(111) we have measured the transistor characteristics of a Si/CoSi2/Si structure. The observed low common emitter current gain is attributed to an absence of current carrying states in the CoSi2 transistor base.
