Semiconductors and Applications of Semiconductors


Semiconductors are solid materials, either non-metallic elements or compounds which allow electrons to pass through them. These materials occupy intermediate position between conductors and insulators. Semiconductors usually have high resistivity, negative temperature coefficient of resistance and are generally hard and brittle.


Germanium (Ge), Arsenic (As), Silicon (Si), Boron (B), Sulphur (S), Selenium(Se).

Applications of Semiconductors

Semiconductors are utilized in making devices used in areas of telecommunication and radio communication, electronics and power engineering, photocells, rectifiers etc.
