Semiconductor Materials

Semiconductor materials are technically minor band gap insulators. Different semiconductor materials differ in their properties and most commonly used semiconductor materials are crystalline inorganic solids and they are classified according to the periodic table groups of their constituent atoms. Semi-conductive devices exhibit various properties such as passing current more easily in one direction than the other, showing variable resistance, and sensitivity to light or heat. The Semiconductor materials address the research and new development of designs of materials and manufacturing systems that have the potential for strong change in the semiconductor industry.

Materials having an electrical conductivity value falling between that of a conductor, like copper, gold and an insulator, such as glass are called semiconductor materials. Their resistance is inversely proportional to their temperature which is opposite to that of a metal. By deliberate and controlled doping of impurities into crystal structures, the conducting properties of semiconductor materials can be altered. Semiconductor materials are vastly used for many purposes and some of the major applications include amplification, switching, and energy conversion.
