Parent topics

Subtopics

  • Light-emitting diode or LED [r]: Rectifying semiconductor diode that converts electric energy into electromagnetic radiation at a visible and near infrared frequencies when its pn junction is forward biased. [e]

Other related topics

  • Electronic band structure [r]: The very closely spaced energy levels available to electrons in solids, which are separated from each other by energy gaps. [e]
  • Bipolar transistor [r]: A three-terminal semiconductor device used for switching and amplification. [e]
  • MOSFET [r]: A type of field-effect transistor with four electrical contacts and three layers: a metal top layer (connected to the gate contact),separated by an insulating layer (usually an oxide layer) from a semiconductor layer (connected to the body contact). The gate voltage switches "on" and "off" the electrical connection between a source and drain contact at the semiconductor surface. [e]
  • MOS capacitor [r]: A two-terminal device consisting of three layers: a metal gate, a semiconducting body and a separating insulator, often an oxide. [e]
  • Schottky diode [r]: A two-terminal electrical device consisting of conductive gate (for example, a metal) on top of a semiconductor body used for switching, rectification and photo-detection [e]
