How To Use semiconducting In A Sentence

  • The most common approach is to use sunlight to knock electrons out of a semiconducting material like silicon, creating an electric current.
  • Phosphorous is then diffused onto one side to create an n-type semiconductor layer and a p-n junction where the two semiconducting surfaces meet. Photovoltaics
  • Chips are made with photolithography, where a beam of parallel light shines through a stencil-like mask onto a semiconducting material, and changes it so that acid will not etch the part exposed.
  • This 20-pound battery-operated detector uses the semiconducting properties of a germanium crystal to detect and analyze neutrons and gamma-rays, common by-products of radioactive decay.
  • Other types of detectors, like those that use a semiconducting material, are slower but provide more data about the gamma rays they pick up.
  • A new generation of ultrasmall transistors and more powerful computer chips using tiny structures called semiconducting nanowires are closer to reality after a key discovery by researchers at IBM, Purdue University and the University of California at Los Angeles. Nano Tech Wire
