Physicists solve decades-old scientific mystery of negative differential resistance
Edmonton, Canada (SPX) Jan 10, 2017
With a storied history that includes more than a half-century of research, a Nobel Prize, and multiple attempts at practical applications, the story of negative differential resistance - or NDR - reads like a scientific mystery, a mystery that University of Alberta physicists have at last succeeded in unraveling. What does this mean? An opportunity to combine the knowledge with existing technology to create faster, cheaper, and smaller electronic devices, a boon to the continued boom of the digita ... read more
