Abstract : A two carrier dual injector semiconductor apparatus utilies a pair of injector gates for simulatensouly injecting holes and electrons into a series stack of insulator layers. The stacked insulator layers which may be arranged in a MIM or MIS configuration have injecting layers near opposing metal gates fro injecting either electrons as holes into the insulator layers depending upon the polarity of the applied bias voltage. The apparatus is capable of high-current low-voltage carrier injection while maintaining a stable trapped spaced charge within the stack of insulator layers.
