Field-Effect Transistors Based on Single Semiconducting Oxide Nanobelts[edit | edit source]

  • 350nm light - increased conductivity by photogeneration of - + pairs
  • after light is switched "off" conductivity slowly decreases

Electric Field Effect in Atomically Thin Carbon Films[edit | edit source]

  • Used on graphene and near atomic thickness carbon films
  • carrier mobility very high, why?

Improved performance of amorphous silicon solar cells via scattering from surface plasmon polaritons in nearby metallic nanoparticles[edit | edit source]

  • comments

Electron−hole pair creation energy in SiO2[edit | edit source]

  • seems to point at the possibility
  • does use SiO2
  • focuses on plasmon excitation/creation - as it decomposes it creates - + pairs

Ausman, G. A.; McLean, F. B.; , "Electron-hole pair creation energy in SiO2," Applied Physics Letters , vol.26, no.4, pp.173-175, Feb 1975 doi: 10.1063/1.88104 [3]

Vectorial Electron Injection into Transparent Semiconductor Membranes and Electric Field Effects[edit | edit source]

  • still reading, may offer some help

Field Aided Lateral Crystallization of Amorphous Silicon Thin Film[edit | edit source]

  • applied field aids in crystallization direction
  • elevated temperature (not operating temp)
