gold doping

[′gōl ‚dōp·iŋ]
(electronics)
A technique for controlling the lifetime of minority carriers in a transistor; gold is diffused into the base and collector regions to reduce storage time in transistor circuits.

Gold doping decreases the intensity of this band, which can be due to the interaction between Au nanoparticles with the Ti[O.sub.2] support [38].
The percentage of gold doping over Ti[O.sub.2] is varied to attain maximum photoactivity, and the dye degradation is monitored.
The advantage of the platinum doping process is to reduce leakage current by approximately 100 times, compared to gold doping, providing scope to improve VF at a given trr.
