In science:

The crossover temperature in metals is out of the experimental range, however it becomes reachable in wires etched at the interface of two semiconducting materials, when the number of conducting channels is highly reduced, and the manifestation of the strong localization has been observed in ref. [109].
Functionals of the Brownian motion, localization and metric graphs
Our investigation employs an ab initio wave-function-based local Hamiltonian formalism which offers a rigorous approach to the calculation of the polarization and local charge redistribution effects around an extra electron or hole placed into the conduction or valence bands of semiconducting and insulating materials.
Correlation-induced corrections to the band structure of boron nitride: a wave-function-based approach
The superconductor does not need to have any special properties either, but in order to maximize the proximity effect it should have as large a gap as possible and to form a clean interface with the insulating/semiconducting material.
A Blueprint for a Topologically Fault-tolerant Quantum Computer
The natural two-dimensionality of graphene matches perfectly to the dominating planar technology of other semiconducting materials, and correspondingly gives the way to creating new hybrid systems.
Spin dephasing and pumping in graphene due to random spin-orbit interaction
The artificial marriage of ferromagnetic and semiconducting properties is one of the main motivations behind the creation and study of diluted magnetic semicondcutors (DMS) focused on (III,Mn)V materials.

Scanning microwave microscopes have been used to image materials at microwave frequencies, and to measure the local resistivity variations of semiconducting materials -. Fig. 1 shows a schematic illustration of our apparatus .
Superconducting Material Diagnostics using a Scanning Near-Field Microwave Microscope
INTRODUCT ION C ALCULATION of alternating magnetic fields and the associated eddy currents is important for the design of various electrical machines and the magnetic field inductor s used for heating, melting, stirring, shaping or levitation of metallic or semiconducting materials.
Boundary-integral method for poloidal axisymmetric AC magnetic fields
It has been observed that in the nanometer regime, the band gap of a semiconducting material increases with reduction of its particle/ grain size.1 This presents a possibility of manufacturing materials of any desirable optical and electronic properties.
