The possible existence of short-channel effects in oxide field-effect transistors is investigated by exploring field-effect transistors with various gate lengths fabricated from LaAlO3-SrTiO3 heterostructures. The studies reveal the existence of channel-length modulation and drain-induced barrier lowering for gate lengths below 1 μm, with a characteristic behavior comparable to semiconducting devices. With the fabrication of field-effect transistors with gate lengths as small as 60 nm, the results demonstrate the possibility to fabricate by electron-beam lithography functional devices based on complex oxides with characteristic lengths of several tens of nanometers.
