New MIM diode may change electronics as we know
posted November 5 2010 13:32.54 by Giorgos Lazaridis

Researchers at Oregon State University have solved a quest in fundamental material science that has eluded scientists since the 1960s, and could form the basis of a new approach to electronics. The discovery, just reported on-line in the professional journal Advanced Materials, outlines the creation for the first time of a high-performance "metal-insulator-metal" diode.

The metal-insulator-metal, or MIM diode, can be used to perform some of the same functions but in a fundamentally different way, and it can change the modern electronics. Douglas Keszler, a distinguished professor of chemistry at OSU said: "Researchers have been trying to do this for decades, until now without success. Diodes made previously with other approaches always had poor yield and performance.".
