1.2 MOS structures

Carefully designed metal–oxide–semiconductor (MOS) structures are a common building block in digital electronics, primarily intended to form part of a transistor-based switch. However, throughout the active regions of a microelectronic chip there will be secondary MOS structures that arise because metal tracks are insulated from the semiconductor substrate by a layer of oxide; equally careful design is necessary to ensure that these do not form part of a switch. The acronym is a mixture o

A rational-economic perspective generally represents risk as a combination of the expected magnitude of a gain or loss, combined with some probability distribution of anticipated outcomes. Economic ideas of risk behaviour are founded largely on expected utility theory. Expected utility theory predicts that investors will always be risk averse. The shape of the utility curve (utility plotted against increasing wealth) is such that utility increases with wealth, but at a declining rate. This is
