Solid Oxide Fuel Cell - Polarizations - Ohmic Polarization
... Ohmic losses in an SOFC result from ionic conductivity through the electrolyte ... temperatures can significantly decrease these ohmic losses ... Another way to decrease ohmic resistance is to decrease the thickness of the electrolyte layer ...
Schottky Diode - Construction
... behave as a rectifier anymore and becomes an ohmic contact ... This can be used for simultaneous formation of ohmic contacts and diodes, as diodes form between the silicide and lightly doped N region and ohmic contacts form between the silicide ... a problem as the resulting contact has too high resistance for a good ohmic contact and too low forward voltage and too high reverse leakage to be a good diode ...
Antenna (radio) - Practical Antennas
... has been eliminated, what remains is a pure resistance, which is the sum of two parts the ohmic resistance of the conductors, and the radiation resistance ... Power absorbed by the ohmic resistance becomes waste heat, and that absorbed by the radiation resistance becomes radiated electromagnetic energy ... The greater the ratio of radiation resistance to ohmic resistance, the more efficient the antenna ...
Tokamak - Plasma Heating - Ohmic Heating
... The heating caused by the induced current is called ohmic (or resistive) heating it is the same kind of heating that occurs in an electric light bulb or in an electric heater ... But as the temperature of heated plasma rises, the resistance decreases and ohmic heating becomes less effective ... that the maximum plasma temperature attainable by ohmic heating in a tokamak is 20-30 million degrees Celsius ...
RF MEMS - Reliability
... poses a reliability issue for ohmic cantilever RF MEMS switches, whereas dielectric charging beam stiction, as shown in Fig ... A high contact pressure assures a low-ohmic contact or alleviates dielectric charging induced beam stiction ... Commercially-available ohmic cantilever RF MEMS switches and capacitive fixed-fixed beam RF MEMS switches have demonstrated lifetimes in excess of 100 billion cycles at 100 mW of RF input power ...
