  • At the FZD's ion beam center, foreign atoms known as 'dopants' are implanted into the nanowires. - latest science and technology news stories

  • This went against all accepted knowledge in the silicon community: It is widely believed at the time among practitioners of the silicon art that the oxide layer used to mask dopants was dirty and, as a result, had to be etched away.

  • Further, I think that graphene, a 2-dim layer of hexagonal carbon. with different P and N dopants will also become a solar cell of the future.

  • The impurities – or dopants – are added to semiconductors to fine-tune their electronic properties.

  • Correctly doping the ultra-thin channels that the consortium hopes to use is simply too difficult-hence the decision to do without dopants altogether and build channels out of pure silicon.

  • As transistors get smaller, however, laying down n-type and p-type materials in proximity gets harder, thanks once again to fluctuations in the concentrations of dopants.

  • In graphene, on the other hand, dopants are generally deposited on top of the carbon sheet rather than taking the place of some of the carbon atoms.
