Advantages and Disadvantages of Solar Energy

Solar energy is a trending topic of science in recent times. The non-renewable sources of energy are about to extinct due to their limited storage on the Earth. Therefore, alternative sources of energy are needed to fulfill our daily needs of energy. There are some renewable sources of energy like Solar energy, Wind energy, Geothermal … Read more

p type semiconductor material – formation, properties

Earlier we have written on intrinsic and extrinsic semiconductors. There are two types of extrinsic semiconductors – n-type and p-type. We already have discussed n type semiconductor materials in another article. In this article, we are going to discuss p type semiconductor material, its formation, properties, examples and uses. One can differentiate n-type and p-type … Read more

n type semiconductor material – formation, properties

Impurity mixed semiconductors are known as the extrinsic semiconductors. Now, there are two types of extrinsic semiconductors. These are n type and p type semiconductors. They have different properties and the ways of formation are also different. We already have discussed p type semiconductors in another article. In this article, we are going to discuss … Read more

Mobility of electron in semiconductor formula | electronics

The term mobility in electronics refers to the ability to move. Mobility of electron in semiconductors gives the idea of the movement of the electrons in the semiconductor materials. The mobility of free electrons and holes are not same and it depends on many factors. In this article, we are going to discuss the electrical … Read more

Why do we need the doping in semiconductor?

We know that in modern technology the Semiconductor materials have a huge role. Almost all the high-speed electronic devices are made of a semiconductor. But we cannot use a pure semiconductor material to construct those devices. we need to dope the semiconductors before using them. In this article, we are going to discuss exactly why … Read more

How the holes move in semiconductor?

We know that a semiconductor have two types of charge carriers – free electrons and holes. Motion of electrons in a conductor is well-known to us. So, we can expect the similar motion of electrons in a semiconductor too. But, how do holes move in a semiconductor? Let’s check it in this post. Here, we … Read more

What are Intrinsic and extrinsic semiconductors?

This is the second article on Semiconductor Materials. You can read previous and Next articles on Semiconductors by clicking on the Previous Article and Next Article buttons respectively at the end of this article. In the first article, we discussed the basic properties, examples and applications of Semiconductors. Different types of semiconductor materials like intrinsic … Read more
