Thomas Burridge, student from Surrey, was the author of the discovery, which could lead to the creation of fundamentally new types of displays, sensors, and even clothing. His scientific work carried out during the summer practice, can play an important role in the future development of flexible electronic devices. This is a field effect transistor of MIS, which are lighter and more economical than traditional ones. They are used in systems that control the brightness and color screens in electronic devices. Field MIS transistors have long been known, but the scope of their use has been limited because it was thought that these transistors have a serious drawback: they can easily overheat and thus be unreliable in chips. However, the results of a study published by Thomas and his supervisor in the journal Scientific Reports, show that these defects are quite easy to handle. 18-year-old Thomas Burridge was an intern at the University of Surrey last summer with the help of the charity program SATRO. Thomas was able to simulate on the computer the behavior of these transistors in various modes and found that a simple change in their geometry allows you to fully solve the problem of self-heating. "When you put in front of a student task, you will never tell him that this issue no one has previously engaged in. They do not realize that addressing the problems at the forefront of science, and thus achieve remarkable results," - said Dr. Radu Sporea that Burridge was scientific director. According to Dr. Sporea, the possibility of such transistors are endless, as they can be printed like paper, and they cost very cheap. "I wanted to understand what scientific research. All it took less than a month. It's amazing how much you can learn in a short time. At first, I doubt that I will be able to discover something new, but then things got easier," - says Thomas . This year, Thomas Burridge is about to start studying at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Cambridge.
