The junction-to-junction variation of atomic configurations often leads to a statistical approach, with ensemble-averaged properties providing access to the relevant physics. However, the full ensemble contains considerable additional information. We report a new analysis of shot noise over entire ensembles of junction configurations using scanning tunneling microscope-style gold break junctions at room temperature in ambient conditions, and compare these data with simulations based on molecular dynamics, a sophisticated tight-binding model, and nonequilibrium Green's functions. The experimental data show a suppression in the variation of the noise near conductances dominated by fully transmitting channels, and a surprising participation of multiple channels in the nominal tunneling regime. Comparison with the simulations, which agree well with published work at low temperatures and ultrahigh vacuum conditions, suggests that these effects likely result from surface contamination and disorder in the electrodes. We propose additional experiments that can distinguish the relative contributions of these factors.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Nielaba, Peter</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Nielaba, Peter</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Natelson, Douglas</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
