How Do Semiconductors Work?
Due to their role in the fabrication of electronic devices, semiconductors are an important part of our lives, without which there would be no TV’s, no computers, no video games, and poor medical diagnostic equipment.
Semiconductors are the materials that allow conductivity between metals and insulators. Mostly used in diodes and transistors.
Due to developments in semiconductor technology throughout the past 2 decades, semiconductors have made enabled electronic devices to become smaller, faster, and more reliable.
Why is it called a Semiconductor?
A semiconductor have taken their name because they are created from a type of material which has an electrical resistance which is between the resistance typical of metals and the resistance typical of insulators, therefore it possesses the ability to – “semi”-conduct electricity.
Semiconductors are used in many electrical circuits because we can control the flow of electrons in this material, for example, with a controlling current.
Semiconductors are also used for other special properties. In fact, a solar cell is made of semiconductors which are sensitive to light energy. The amount of light energy that hits the semiconductors will determine the amount of electrical current generated by those semiconductors that make up the solar cells.
