Concept Info

NAME

Semiconductors

DESCRIPTION

Semiconductors are materials that have a small electronic bandgap. This bandgap prevents current from flowing at absolute zero, but thermally excited charge carriers can begin to flow at higher temperatures. Semiconductors, notably silicon, are at the heart of the modern microelectronics industry, and also have applications in light sources and detectors.

JSON-LD is the canonical representation for SciGraph data.

TIP: You can open this SciGraph record using an external JSON-LD service: JSON-LD Playground Google SDTT
