Doping a Semiconductor

Doping A Semiconductor

  1. One way to increase the conductivity of a semiconductor is by doping
  2. Doping is a process of adding a small amount of impurities to a semiconductor.
  3. The impurities added to the semiconductor are called dopants.
  4. By adding impurity atoms to a conductor can increase its electrical conductivity
  5. There are two types of semiconductor depending on the type of impurities doped, namely
    1. the n-type semiconductor
    2. the p-type semiconductor
