Si Technology Si is a semiconductor Electrical conductivity is between a metal conductor (Cu) and an insulator (diamond) Material whose electrical properties can be influenced in a variety of subtle ways Some mobile charge carriers but fewer than metals Electrical current carried by electrons and holes Hole is an electron vacancy – a “virtual” particle with a charge opposite of electrons
