The electrofishing which involves running an electron current into the water using rickety generation to catch Sher Mahi which is found only in Kabul River.
Strangely, the flow of electrons, although very slow, produces an electron current that is "as fast as an electromagnetic wave travelling at the speed of light in the conductor" [1]: after all, a current of electrons is an electron current.
However, actual theoretical models to describe BEEM are based on band structure or k-space Green~s function methods, and do not take into account the shape and size of the STM tip, although there is clear experimental evidence that these parameters strongly affect the properties on the electron current.
sn], the minority carrier hole and electron current densities of the junction at the edges of the depletion region [J.
where: j(t) is the electron current density, U the acceleration voltage, P(t) the power of electron, S the irradiation area of the electron beam, [[eta].
A biopotential electrode is a transducer that senses ion distribution on the surface of tissue, and converts the ion current to electron current.
Let z be axial coordinate, i(z, t)--distribution of tape density of electron current in the specimen at the instant t (under tape density of current the current is meant, which acts on the area of ring surface of the specimen of a unit length).
The increase in the reverse hole current component from the base to emitter is realized by adding a diode between the base and emitter nodes, which is correlated with the electron current component.
