ISSUES TO ADDRESS. .. How are electrical conductance and resistance characterized ? What are the physical phenomena that distinguish conductors, semiconductors, and insulators? For metals, how is conductivity affected by imperfections, T , and deformation? Chapter 18: Electrical Properties Dr. A. Keshavarz - ENGR 4250U
Scanning electron microscope images of an IC: A dot map showing location of Si (a semiconductor): -- Si shows up as light regions. A dot map showing location of Al (a conductor): -- Al shows up as light regions. Fig. (a), (b), (c) from Fig. 18.0, Callister 7e . Fig. (d) from Fig. 18.27 (a), Callister 7e .
