Researchers in the College of Engineering at Oregon State University have made a significant advance in the function of metal-insulator-metal, or MIM diodes, a technology premised on the assumption that the speed of electrons moving through silicon is simply too slow. For the extraordinary speed envisioned in some future electronics applications, these innovative diodes solve problems that would not be possible with silicon-based materials as a limiting factor. The new diodes consist of...

A mercury arc valve converts high-voltage or high-current alternating current into direct current. It is an electrical rectifier often used to provide power for industrial motors, electric railways, streetcars, and electric locomotives. Peter Cooper Hewitt, in 1902, invented the mercury arc rectifier. It was further developed by researchers throughout the 1920s and 1930s. Prior to solid-state devices, mercury arc rectifiers were one of the more efficient rectifiers. Silicon diode and...
