Different Types of Semiconductors

Example of Fuses

Before the advent of semiconductors, all solids were divided into two groups. They are conductors and insulators. Conductors: The basic definition of conductor is which metal have very low resistance called conductors. Example of conductors is aluminum which is most repeatedly used, has a very low resistivity of about 10-6Ω-cm…
