Skin Depth in Good Conductors

This tutorial article focuses on the skin depth phenomenon in good conductors. In order to explain this concept, we begin with the uniform plane propagation, leading to the wave equations and their solutions in... Read More...

De-risking Resonances in Single Conductor Structures, Such as “Ground”

In this article, the author will identify two major types of single-conductor structure resonances and describe some case studies for both. He will then describe how design projects can quickly and easily be ‘de-risked’ from the possibilities of suffering either type of resonance by the use of low-cost field and circuit simulators and/or low-cost bench testing on physical ‘mock-ups’.

Researchers Create Super-Efficient Graphene Conductors

A team of researchers at Georgia Tech have discovered a way to use graphene to transport electrons with virtually no resistance. Known as ballistic transport, this property is accomplished when electrons travel through graphene nanoribbons and behave more like optical waveguides or quantum dots.

Conductors and “Conductive Paths” – What Is Really Happening (And why should anyone care?)

When people are asked what is the most commonly used component in electrical or electronic circuits, the typical answers are “Well, of course everyone knows its resistors”, or “It must be capacitors”, and even sometimes “Nothing operates without transistors”. In fact, none of those answers are correct; the real answer is that conductors are the most common type of component.
