A semiconductor device is an electronic component that relies on the electronic properties of a semiconductor material primarily silicon , germanium , and gallium arsenide , as well as organic semiconductors for its function. Semiconductor devices have replaced vacuum tubes in most applications.
This dominant position is due to properties which will perhaps assume even greater significance in the future. Silicon is universally applicable both for sensors, and for analogue and logic circuits as well as for memory cells. It is comparatively easy to work with. Supplies of silicon are almost limitless; after oxygen silicon is the second most common element in the earth's crust.
Silicon crystallises in a diamond lattice Fig. Its universal applicability as a semiconductor is not synonymous with the optimal suitability for the current special application. A superlattice structure Fig. The atoms A and B are arranged periodically with a period length which superposes the natural period of the lattice.
If the period of the superlattice is small e. The properties of the synthetic semiconductor are controllable by the geometrical dimensions and the concentrations of the superlattice structure.

Universal growth of ultra-thin III–V semiconductor single crystals
The bond structure of a semiconductor determines the material properties of a semiconductor. One key effect are the energy levels which the electrons can occupy and how they move about the crystal lattice. The electrons in the covalent bond formed between each of the atoms in the lattice structure are held in place by this bond and hence they are localized to the region surrounding the atom. These bonded electrons cannot move or change energy, and thus are not considered "free" and cannot participate in current flow, absorption, or other physical processes of interest in solar cells. However, only at absolute zero are all electrons in this "stuck," bonded arrangement.
This dominant position is due to properties which will perhaps assume even greater significance in the future. Silicon is universally applicable both for sensors, and for analogue and logic circuits as well as for memory cells. It is comparatively easy to work with.

Electronic Materials pp Cite as. The use of energetic ion and laser beams to analyze and modify surfaces has had a profound impact on the development of many areas of materials science. This scientific field is very large in scope and here we will concentrate on the best understood and most technologically important subject: Si processing science and technology. The emphasis will be on what new properties have been discovered or what new phenomena have been explored using ion or laser beams. These techniques have led to a better understanding of many phenomena, from energy transfer to defect reactions.

Moore's law is the observation that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit IC doubles about every two years. Moore's law is an observation and projection of a historical trend. Rather than a law of physics , it is an empirical relationship linked to gains from experience in production.
