Of a semiconductor, the variation of the conductivity of a semiconductor through variation of the charge carrier density.



Related Terms

DEPLETION LAYER

An electric double layer formed at the surface of contact between a metal and a semiconductor having different work functions, because the mobile carrier charge density is insufficient to neutralize the fixed charge density of donors and acceptors. Also known as barrier layer (deprecated); blocking layer (deprecated); space-charge layer.

LIQUID SEMICONDUCTOR

An amorphous material in solid or liquid state that possesses the properties of varying resistance induced by charge carrier injection.

SEMICONDUCTOR

A solid of crystal form that has conductivity between that of a conductor and an insulator.

CHARGE-COUPLED DEVICE

A semiconductor device wherein minority charge is stored in a spatially defined depletion region (potential well) at the surface of a semiconductor and is moved about the surface by transferring this charge to similar adjacent wells. Abbreviated CCD.

FIELD-EFFECT DIODE

A semiconductor diode in which the charge carriers are of only one polarity.

JUNCTION TRANSISTOR

A transistor in which emitter and collector barriers are formed between semiconductor regions of opposite conductivity type.

MINIMUM BILL OF LADING

A clause in a bill of lading which speci es the least charge that the carrier will make for issuing a lading. The charge may be a de nite sum or the current charge per ton for any specified quantity.

ADVANCED CHARGE

Transportation charge advanced by one carrier to another to be collected by the later carrier from the consignor or consignee.

EXTRINSIC DETECTOR

A semiconductor detector of electromagnetic radiation that is doped with an electrical impurity and utilizes transitions of charge carriers from impurity states in the band gap to nearby energy bands.

MULTIPLICATION

An increase in current flow through a semiconductor because of increased carrier activity.
