Reduction in the skin effect for the sintered Si nanopolycrystalline for semiconductor material at a high frequency due to its nanostructure has been studied.
Skin effect is the phenomenon that AC tends to flow mainly at the surface of a conductor which is different from distributing uniformly throughout the cross section of the conductor in the case of DC, as shown in Figure 1.
For a conductivity value of 60 S/m, the calculated skin effect is 0.5 [micro]m.
Finite difference time domain methods (FDTD), numerical inversion of Laplace transform, and circuital approaches, are usually employed to incorporate skin effect phenomena in time-domain transmission-line analysis [16-24].
Thus, our experimental studies have confirmed the principle of heating stranded wire with high-frequency electromagnetic waves using two physical phenomena: the skin effect and discrete transformation of the radiated energy into heat.
In contrast, for moving rings consisting of multiple connected conductive regions, the superposition of skin effect and proximity effect leads to significantly less applied magnetic force.
Again, the loss due to skin effect in fabricated filter is important in the fabricated structure.
This provides a larger area for the current to flow through to combat the skin effect at frequencies up to 5 MHz for higher inductance values.
