Electrical properties of single-crystal semiconductor material are determined by: Chemical composition Arrangement of atoms in the material (crystal structure) Solid state materials can be grouped into 3 classes: 1. Conductors – e.g Aluminum, silver have high conductivities 10 4 – 10 6 S/cm 2. Insulators – e.g. Sand ( SiO 2 ) have very low conductivities 10 -18 – 10 -8 S/cm 3. Semiconductors- e.g Silicon, Germanium have intermediate conductivities between conductors and insulators
