Recent advances on electrical contact resistance: Theory and experiment

Abstract

Electrical contact is important to thin film devices and integrated circuits, carbon nanotubes based cathodes and interconnects, field emitters, wire-array Z pinches, metal insulatorvacuum junctions, and high power microwave sources, etc. Because of the surface roughness on a microscopic scale, true contact between two pieces of conductors occurs only at… (More)
