Yumeng Zheng is a master student in electrical and electronic engineering at the Doshisha University. She has a BS(2013) in Material Physics from Northwestern Polytechnical University and MS(2018) in same major from Xidian University. From 2013 to 2015 she worked at Samsung Semiconductor (Xi''an) Co., Ltd. as a quality engineer. Her research area is additive effects on the electrical characteristics of varistors.


ZnO-based varistors are widely used in different circuits and power systems as surge absorbers because of the typical high nonlinear voltage–current (V-I) characteristics. Double Schottky barriers formed between ZnO grains... [ view full abstract ]
