IEDM: Three-electron scattering discovery improves SiC mosfets

Factors limiting resistance under SiC interface “Although it has been recognised that electron scatting under the SiC interface is limited by three factors, namely, the roughness of the SiC interface, the charges under the SiC interface and the atomic vibration, the contribution of each factor had been unclear,” said Mitsubishi. In a proof-of-concept, a planarRead more about IEDM: Three-electron scattering discovery improves SiC mosfets[…]
