| Sorry, I'm here to discuss science.
Science is the observation, investigation and explanaton of natural
phenomena; there is no way a semiconductor can be considered
natural. Perhaps your misunderstanding of science is what the rest
of the world calls technology.

Then don't start one when others are trying to help you understand
the question you asked.
| If you want attempt to derive the Thermal Voltage equation then great.
I have no great desire to compute direct current * resistance or the heat
radiated from a reactive capacitor.

I'd be interested to see a semiconductor operating at that frequency.
