Types of Semiconductors
Broadly speaking, there are two types of semiconductors: p-types and n-types. A p-type semiconductor has a positive electric charge while an n-type semiconductor has a negative electric charge. When a p-type and n-type semiconductor are combined, the connection point is known as the p-n junction. The number and configurations of p-n junctions produce two specific types of semiconductors called diodes and transistors.
A semiconductor diode is a single p-n junction and a two-terminal device. In most applications, you will find semiconductor diodes like:
- IMPATT diodes
- Laser diodes
- Light-emitting diodes (LED)
A semiconductor transistor is two p-n junctions and a three-terminal device. Common semiconductor transistors include:
- Bipolar junction transistor (BJT)
- Field-effect transistor (FET)
- Metal-oxide-semiconductor FET (MOSFET)
