IISER Pune finds a viable alternative to silicon diode

IISER Pune researchers have fabricated a organic-inorganic hybrid diode that shows high electrical conductivity and also high current rectification ratio, comparable with silicon diodes. The high rectification ratio remains unchanged even at an elevated temperature. Researchers at the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Pune have fabricated a non-silicon, organic-inorganic hybrid diode that … Continue reading IISER Pune finds a viable alternative to silicon diode
