Physics:Velocity overshoot

From HandWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Velocity overshoot is a physical effect resulting in transit times for charge carriers between terminals that are smaller than the time required for emission of an optical phonon.[1][2] The velocity therefore exceeds the saturation velocity up to three times, which leads to faster field-effect transistor or bipolar transistor switching. The effect is noticeable in the ordinary field-effect transistor for the gates shorter than 100 nm.[3]

Ballistic collection transistor

The device intentionally designed to benefit from the velocity overshoot is called ballistic collection transistor[4] (not to be mistaken with the ballistic deflection transistor).
