Of cheese sausage semiconductor

Poor cheese sausage was being modeled as a semiconductor by 3 crazy (or more appropriately termed as the "yeow syndrome") engineers this afternoon over lunch at business canteen.

The sausage comprises of meat atoms positioned regularly in the sausage lattice. There are small amount of point defects which causes some ugly hollows in the sausage. Some grain boundaries, which are generally undesirable, are present, causing significant amount of scattering of the cheese particle, which is modeled as the negatively charge carriers aka the electrons. Photogeneration in the form or light or heat excited the electrons cheese, causing them to spread outwards towards the vacuum level, while creating a cheese-hole pair in the process. It was rumored that the sausage was doped, perhaps with a group 5 elements including the likes of oil and chilly sauce, in an effort to enhance the electrons cheese concentration (n-type sausage!) and thus the sausage electrical cheesy properties.

Someone gotta stop these 3 lunatics before they start creating a Gaussian surface around the cheese sausage and taking the surface integral to find the electric cheese field density…

Wah mad !!! Someone has been studying too much EE2004...

OMG...u really blog abt it.

I'm so disappointed. If you construct a Gaussian surface you would be performing a *surface* integral!

Ooops.. srry sir, got that corrected.. Heh.

We can assume that the sausage is a thin line...then use Gaussian.

Otherwise we can model it as a 3d figure and use divergence theorem to convert dV into dS and then use surface integral.

you guys really need to relax man. though i do support this "application learning". haha. btw, what about the roti? not exactly a Gaussian surface, but close enough right? =)

Mitch. Pls dun encourage them. If not later they will blame me for infecting them with the "yeow" syndrome. lol.

I am half glad that I am not an engineer. Haha the other half is trying to hide the fact that I have no idea what the %^&#$%^ you are talking about. *hide face*

mw said...

yeow >> i think they are already affected.

neurotic >> don't be HALF glad you're not an engineer. BE ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED AND THANK GOD EVERY NIGHT THAT YOU'RE NOT.

Yea man already infected liao lar, esp after 8 pm where the syndrome is at its climax where ideas for cheese sausage part 2 is developing in the infected mind. We might bring 2 sausage together, one n-type and the other p-type and see if it maintains the properties of a pn junction.

Yup, thats how bad we are infected. Heh. =p
