(dielectric now)   Very high input impedance.   E ­field increases conducLvity in n ­channel between Source and Drain.   If VGB is high enough, a high concentraLon of negaLve charge carriers forms in an inversion layer located in a thin layer next to the interface between the semiconductor and the insulator.   17 Light EmiPng Diodes Electrons and holes combine (annihilate) giving off energy equal to the band ­gap.   Direct band ­gap means k ­ vectors match in conducLon and valence bands allowing photon emission.   Si and Ge k does not match and energy is transferred to the laPce; no photon....
