Does Ohm's Law Apply to a Semiconductor?
they had to know...
the big experiment at Fermilab depended on it . . . .
the particle physics group at Boston University was responsible for finding out . . . .
of course, they knew Ohm's Law,
, for resistors and wires in a normal environment . . . .
but what about EXTREME conditions?
semiconductors under intense RADIATION
Is it the same? Is it different? Is it still
V = IR
