Chapter 18- ISSUES TO ADDRESS. .. How are electrical conductance and resistance characterized ? 1 What are the physical phenomena that distinguish conductors, semiconductors, and insulators? For metals, how is conductivity affected by imperfections, T, and deformation? For semiconductors, how is conductivity affected by impurities (doping) and T? CHAPTER 18:
