Recording Speedy Electrons in Silicon
Posted in News, Electronics, Diagnostics on Wednesday, 24 December 2014
An international team of physicists and chemists based at the University of California at Berkeley has, for the first time, recorded the action of silicon electrons becoming freed from their atomic shells using attosecond pulses of soft X-ray light lasting only a few billionths of a billionth of a second.These mobile electrons make the semiconductor material conductive so that an applied voltage results in a flowing current.
