Intrinsic semiconductor materials are doped with group V impurity elements (phosphorus, arsenic, etc.), and the impurities provide electrons, making the electron concentration in them greater than the hole concentration, forming an N-type semiconductor (Figure 1) material, and the impurity is called “donor” “. At this time, the electron concentration is greater than the hole concentration, … Read More

Interpreted from the energy band point of view, the reason why the conductivity of a semiconductor is between a conductor and an insulator lies in the band gap of the semiconductor energy band. The energy value that the electrons in free space can obtain is basically continuous, but in semiconductors, due to quantum effects, the … Read More

Crystal structureSolid substances can be divided into two categories, crystalline and non-crystalline, according to the arrangement rules of their particles (atoms, ions, and molecules). Solid substances with a definite melting point are called crystals, such as silicon, gallium arsenide, ice, and general metals; solid substances that have no definite melting point and gradually soften within … Read More

In order to illustrate the concept of photovoltaic effect, we have to start with semiconductors. According to the electrical conductivity, solid materials can be divided into insulators, conductors and semiconductors. In layman’s terms, those that can conduct electricity are called conductors; those that cannot conduct electricity are called insulators; those that are between conductors and … Read More
