Metal-insulator-metal (MIM) diode is a type of nonlinear device very similar to a semiconductor diode that is capable of very fast operation. Depending on the geometry and the material used for fabrication, the operation mechanisms are governed either by quantum tunnelling or thermal activation.. In , Torrey et al. stated that "It should be possible to make metal-insulator-metal rectifiers.

Crystal rectifiers or crystal diodes These are point-contact diodes. The 1N21 series and others are used in mixer and detector applications in radar and microwave receivers.

The. Rectifier devices. Before the development of silicon semiconductor rectifiers, vacuum tube thermionic diodes and copper oxide- or selenium-based metal rectifier stacks were used.

With the introduction of semiconductor electronics, vacuum tube rectifiers became obsolete, except for some enthusiasts of vacuum tube audio power rectification from very low to very high current.

McGraw-Hill, New York, A crystal detector is an obsolete electronic component used in some early 20th century radio receivers that consists of a piece of crystalline mineral which rectifies the alternating current radio signal and was employed as a detector (demodulator) to extract the audio modulation to produce the sound in the earphones.

It was the first type of semiconductor diode, and one of the first. Radio -- Rectifiers. See also what's at your library, or elsewhere.

Broader terms: Radio; Electric current rectifiers; Radio -- Equipment and supplies; Narrower term: Crystal dete. One of the most common uses for rectifier diodes in electronics is to convert household alternating current into direct current that can be used as an alternative to batteries.

The rectifier circuit, which is typically made from a set of cleverly interlocked diodes, converts alternating current to direct current. In household current, the voltage swings [ ].

The differences in the rectifier loading seem thus to be an explanation of the discrepancies in the power dependence of n. Received ' REFERENCES 1) Torrey, H. and Whitener, C. A., Crystal Rectifiers, MIT Radiation Laboratory Series, Vol. 15, McGraw-Hill Book Company, Inc., New York ().Cited by: 1.

Microwave Transmission Circuits Technique of Microwave Measurements Microwave Duplexers Crystal Rectifiers Microwave Mixers Author: J. Saxton. Purdue undertook development of an improved point contact crystal rectifier, a device made by pressing a sharpened metal wire (a "cat whisker") against a piece of semiconducting material.

Crystal rectifiers made with sulfides and oxides were used in the early days of. High dielectric constant is most essential for a satisfactory rectifier (Sec.

6), and it is believed that this is the main reason why silicon (ε = 13) gives good rectifiers. The difference of woik function between crystal and cat’s whisker is rather immaterial as long as it has the correct sign and is greater than about volts.

The Diode. The diode is one of the semiconductor revolution’s first offspring. The device is basically two slabs of semiconductors glued to each other. However, the semiconductors differ in their properties: one is electron-impoverished, or exhibits an excess of positive charges or holes, while the other is suffused with electrons and therefore exhibits an excess of negative charges.Theory of the Boundary Layer of Crystal Rectifiers.
