A simple device for image scanning and storage based on a semiconductor structure is proposed. The scanning and storage involve laser-beam reading. A video signal is represented by the photoelectromotive force generated by the structure. Simple experiments demonstrating that the structure proposed works as a vidicon and a storage device capable of the data storage for at least two hours are presented. A physical interpretation of the effects observed is proposed. © 2004 MAIK “Nauka / Interperiodica”.

    The 1/f noise magnitude of n-channel metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistors is found to decrease by up a factor of ∼3 after 18 years of room-temperature aging. This decrease is largest in devices with high-temperature post-gate-oxidation N2 annealing, which increases the...

    I-V characteristics of Al-TiCu/n-Si Schottky diodes with polycrystalline metal film have been investigated in the temperature range (298-458)K. Dependence of the characteristics on the temperature and voltage are explained in the light of polycrystalline structure of metal film. The electrically...

    The sensitivity of an imperfectly balanced impedance bridge is limited by the remaining offset voltage. Here, we present a procedure for offset reduction in impedance measurements using a lock-in amplifier, by applying a complex compensating voltage external to the bridge. This procedure takes...

    We report using chemical functionalization to control local carrier type and density in graphene. Low frequency transport measurements demonstrate independent carrier types and densities within adjacent graphene and hydrogenated graphene regions. Measurements of the Hall coefficient confirm that...
