    It has been shown recently that only a small part of the emitter-base interface in a Si bipolar junction transistor participates in short-pulsing avalanche switching. This lateral current shrinkage attributed to the 'winner takes all' effect reduces the transistor switching size from 1600 to...

    We conducted spin-dependent tunneling spectroscopy measurements in Fe/ZnSe/Ga1-xMnxAs magnetic tunnel diodes that had a metal-insulator-semiconductor structure. The tunneling magnetoresistance signal in differential conductance spectra (dI/dV-V) was found to disappear for bias voltages (V)...
