Re: Tem effect on mobility

Threshold voltage decreases linearly with increase in temperature. At higher temperature contribution in the formation of channel carriers from thermal effect will be more and lesser gate voltage will be required to form the channel. The mobility of the carriers has a nonlinear dependence on tempera...

Re: IBM wants to kill the hard drive it invented

IBM unleashed the world’s first computer hard disk drive in 1956 named as RAMAC (Random Access Method of Accounting and Control). The drive holds 5MB of data at $10,000 a megabyte. The disk was as big as two refrigerators and uses 50 platters of size 24-inch each. It weighed more than a ton. http://...

Cool Electron to -228 Degrees Celsius Without External Means

Researchers have done electron cooling before, but only when the entire device is immersed into an extremely cold cooling bath. Seong Jin Koh, an associate professor at UT Arlington and his team used a nano-scale structure -- which consists of a sequential array of a source electrode, a quantum well...
