Class Information
Number: 257/49
Name: Active solid-state devices (e.g., transistors, solid-state diodes) > Non-single crystal, or recrystallized, semiconductor material forms part of active junction (including field-induced active junction)
Description: Subject matter wherein there is an active junction (e.g., a junction between dissimilar materials, or a junction induced by an applied electric field, which exhibits non-linear current-voltage characteristics) and at least part of the active junction is formed by a semiconductor material in polycrystalline or amorphous form.
