Thermoelectricity is a physical phenomenon that describes how temperature differences within a solid produce electrical voltages. An illustrative application of this would be, for example, charging a wristwatch by exploiting the temperature difference between wrist and environment. Matthias Popp ...

New method finds defects in power transistors more accurately, quickly and simply Transistors are needed wherever current flows, and they are an indispensable component of virtually all electronic switches. In the field of power electronics, transistors are used to switch large currents. However, o...

Controlling electronic current is essential to modern electronics, as data and signals are transferred by streams of electrons which are controlled at high speed. Demands on transmission speeds are also increasing as technology develops. Scientists from the Chair of Laser Physics and the Chair of Ap...

A fundamental and counter-intuitive phenomenon of quantum mechanics is the tunnelling of electrons through barriers that, classically, the electron should not penetrate. This effect is efficient only on the nanoscale, due to the exponential decay of the wave function in the barrier. It was theref...
