This is kind of obvious or ignorant yet there are just a few references to photodielectric effect about semiconductors online
use the photodielectric effect to make better semiconductors
basically intel did this thing where they used hafnium as a dielectric (insulator)on chips as it is a more effective
insulator between active regions I figured that the photoelectric effect was also a photodielectric effect that is you could use light on a specially doped semiconductor to make it more insulative
thus the idea here is to dope the si or SiHf material such that it is photodielectric that is even more insulative
then materials like LEDs turn on the super insulativity of the material
that creates a clockless cpu opportunity although thats a different idea
anyway there are photodielectrics listed at (link) Russian research like GeAs as well as CdS I cannot tell about silicon
anyway circuits are so tiny they are effectively light transparent yet because of bandpass effect photons that cause superinsulativity may lack absorption at an electron transport material
(?) this Russian researchers publications are the biggest list of photodielectrics ive seen yet

||Are you sure the photodielectric effect produces an insulator that is better than ususal ones? I gathered the effect to be interesting for it's interactiveness, -> having a material that alters it's capacity according to light influx.
||I have the impression that this could work. Have you considered the possibility of actually using light itself for signalling inside the chip?
||You haven't explained how this electronics stuff is connected to the fryer
||I thought dielectric was a Welsh wiring expert.
||Aside from that, though, I too was under the impression
that the photodielectric effect was used to switch from
conduction to insulation, but that the insulation achieved
was not that fantastic (ie, the merits of the dielectric
effect rested on its switchability, just as photoresistors
are used for light responsiveness, not as "better
||I dunno, Beany. You may have something in mind that's
brilliant, but it takes some digging.
||Maybe the hardware [beanangel] runs on uses this technology.
