We are developing NONcrystallizable[TM] hole-transporting, electron-transporting, ambipolar, fluorescent, phosphorescent, water-soluble, crosslinkable, and solvent- or vacuum-coatable molecular glass mixtures.
For instance, ambipolar diffusion is predicted to dominate in the tenuous hot corona of the disc.
The latter, yet unknown, have been envisioned to display ambipolar organic properties, which are not found with actual inorganic- and metal-based semiconductors that are so prominent in modern electronic devices.
Growing interest has been focused on finding materials with ambipolar charge-transporting characteristics for application in light-emitting diodes and other optoelctronic devices.
One of the accomplishments has involved gaining an understanding of what is known as ambipolar diffusion, in which both the electrons and the positively charged ions in protoplanetary disks are dragged along by a magnetic field.
He covers elements of the theory of numerical modeling of gas-discharge phenomena, numerical simulation models of glow discharge, and ambipolar models of direct current discharges.
Apart from their rapid operations and other advantages, these types of transistors have their own weak points, including off-state drain-voltage dependency, ambipolar behavior, and excessive switching activities.
