Bias

1. In statistics, a circumstance leading to inaccurate results because of conscious or unconscious manipulation of data. Bias is anything that reduces the randomness of the sample being tested.

2. Anything that affects a decision other than facts. For example, a company may be disinclined to expand into an area of town because it is perceived as dangerous, whether or not it actually is. Bias is thought to reduce efficiency. See also: Behavioral economics.

When the forward bias voltages are 0, 1.5, 1.8, 2 V, respectively, the transmission spectrum of the micro-nano SOI micro-ring electro-optic modulation has been tested, as shown in Figure 11.
Thus, the frictional force can be controlled through the use of laser processing under a forward bias voltage.
Our experimental results showed that charge transport in these compounds take place via different mechanism in reverse and forward bias conditions.
The rectification ratio--the rate of current density under forward bias to reverse bias--of these samples were calculated as 9.4 for sample 2, 4.5 for sample 3, 5.2 for sample 4 and 4.9 for sample 5.
As shown in this figure, the intrinsic PN diode in forward bias improves the current of the diode as compared to conventional diode in Figure 1(c), in which the PN diode is reverse biased in the forward region.

It requires 1.2 V to operate in forward bias state, while above 10 V to operate in reverse bias state at 10 GHz.
The diode is simulated using the actual diode current-voltage equation for forward bias, while using a circuit model consisting of resistor and capacitor in parallel for reversed bias in the presence of both axial and skewed FSS grids, which provides more accurate simulation results compared to simulating the diode as an open circuit (OC) for the OFF state and a short circuit (SC) for the ON state [16].
The reverse saturation current ([I.sub.0]) can be obtained by extrapolating the linear portion of the forward bias in the ln I-V plot to the intercept point on the current axis at zero-bias (V = 0) and is given by
This LVFR family utilizes a trench MOS structure that enables an enhanced conduction zone under forward bias, resulting in significant reduction in forward voltage drop.
No [F.sub.r] peaks appear in forward bias. The [I.sub.d]-[V.sub.d] curve is measured experimentally (Fig.
