Semiconductors—The Miracle Material
Lecture no. 6 from the course: Understanding Modern Electronics
Taught by Professor Richard Wolfson | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Semiconductors make possible the transistors at the heart of electronics, including integrated circuits and computers. Learn how the atomic configuration of semiconductors makes them unique, and how engineers adjust their properties to make two types of semiconductors—P and N. Witness the critical role that PN-junctions play in semiconductor devices.
