Semiconductors and Modern Microelectronics
Lecture no. 26 from the course: The Joy of Science
Taught by Professor Robert M. Hazen | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
If conductors and insulators were the only materials we had, the world of electronics would be quite limited. Computers and other marvels of modern electronics rely on the microchip, or integrated circuit, which is a single semiconductor device. Learn what semiconductors are, and how they work.
