Contact resistance

View this topic in
The term contact resistance refers to the contribution to the total resistance of a material which comes from the electrical leads and connections as opposed to the intrinsic resistance, which is an inherent property, independent of the measurement method. (

Quench behavior of the switching elements of a hybrid HTS current limiter

Granados, X.; Puig, T.; Teva, J.; Mendoza, E.; Obradors, X. Applied Superconductivity, IEEE Transactions on, 2001

In the hybrid HTS current limiter, current limitation is due to the transition to the normal resistive state of YBCO bars, which are shorting the secondary of a transformer. The HTS bars act as current driven switches allowing two states, a low impedance state in which the bar is in its superconducting state and a higher impedance state arisen after ...

Platinum silicide metallic source & drain process optimization for FDSOI pMOSFETs

Carron, V.; Nemouchi, F.; Morand, Y.; Poiroux, T.; Vinet, M.; Bernasconi, S.; Louveau, O.; Lafond, D.; Delaye, V.; Allain, F.; Minoret, S.; Vandroux, L.; Billon, T. SOI Conference, 2009 IEEE International, 2009

We report on the development of a metallic source and drain module for FDSOI pMOSFETs including lateral PtSi formation, Ti/TiN barrier, optimized doping conditions, controlled PtSi penetration below spacers and suitable cleaning of the PtSi surface prior to barrier deposition. Mean specific contact resistivity values lower than 2 Omega mum2 have been achieved, which leads to highly performant pMOSFET devices ...

Numerical Analyses of Electrical Contact Characteristics of YBCO Bulk With Silver Deposition

Jian Li; Mingzhe Rong; Yi Wu; Zhiqiang Sun Applied Superconductivity, IEEE Transactions on, 2007

In this paper, an axial symmetric model is constructed to investigate the electrical contact characteristics of YBCO bulk with silver deposited on the contact surface. In order to calculate the thermal-electromagnetic coupling characteristics near the contact spot, a series expression is derived to describe the quenching behavior of YBCO bulk based on the power law and Kim model and a ...

Calculation of Bipolar Transistor Base Resistance Using Finite Element Method

Vahrmann, Reinhold; Barke, E. Solid State Device Research Conference, 1989. ESSDERC '89. 19th European, 1989

To model NPN-transistor behaviour at high currents or high frequencies, an exact description of base resistance is needed. In this paper a new method for base resistance calculation is presented, that takes into account three- dimensional physical effects at high currents. A distributed equivalent circuit is generated for each NPN-transistor layout using the finite element method. Calculating the power dissipation ...
