Basic MOSFET Fabrication

Daniel A. Ivy, Parkland College


The MOSFET, or metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor, are the sole entities responsible for processing in microchips of everyday electronics, yet they have become extremely small. How can one manufacture such a small, powerful product? By using the simple process of pushing ions away with a nearby electric charge, a switch can be compressed down to unimaginable sizes.
