I know that photovoltaic panels are more efficient at lower temperatures: As the temperature increases, the output voltage decreases. I am looking for an explanation of the mechanism behind this ...
It seems odd to me that overclocking a CPU causes it to consume more energy. The amount of energy flowing through the CPU should be related to the average number of 'gates' (or transistors) that ...
I thought that it was valid for very low temperatures since for it to be valid I think that it is necessary to be in the non-degeneracy condition, which requires $E_G >> k_B T$ (with $E_G$ being ...
I read somewhere that if we increase the temperature of the material in a laser diode the threshold current for lasing also increases. Can someone explain to me why is this happening? What is the ...
I have a question that popped up in an old exam I just can't find a way to solve. If you drop the temperature of this material from room temperature (I guess around 300K) to 0C (273K) the ...
