The efficiency enhancement of the mc-Si solar cells was observed after by applying silicon oxide passivation layer grown by two-step thermal oxidation (TO) method.
Device papers include: multilevel cell storage and resistance variability in resistive random access memory (ReRAM); the mechanisms and characteristics of resistive switching in silicon oxide memory devices such as ReRAM; a synaptic device of one diode-one resistor architecture with silicon oxide based resistive switch memory; an on-chip wide range bidirectional current sensor for lithium ion battery management; and impacts on electrostatic discharge (ESD) reliability by different layout engineering in sub-micrometer high voltage lateral-diffused MOSFET (LDMOS) devices.
The evidence in favor of the star being old comes from detection of masers, which the European Space Agency ( describes as "the microwave equivalent of a visible-light laser." Data gathered by the ESA's Herschel Space Observatory and NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope shows that the star is emitting silicon oxide and hydroxyl masers in patterns that are exclusively associated with late-stage stars.
The low mobility is due to electrically active defects which trap carriers at the silicon oxide gate dielectric--SiC interface.
