When impurities are added to semiconductors, the conductivity

A. increases

B. increases then decreases

C. decreases

D. remains constant

QUICK ANSWER…

A

DETAILS…

Pure semiconductors are not desirable in construction of electronics due to their poor level of conductivity. To improve the quality and conductivity of pure semiconductors, certain impurities are introduced in a process known as DOPING.

Now for the right answer to the above question:

  1. Option A is correct. the doping introduces free electrons and holes which are the main carriers of electricity in semiconductors.
  2. Option B is incorrect. it increases and never decreases.
  3. C is incorrect.
  4. D is not the correct answer. it does not remain constant.

KEY-POINTS…

You may please note these/this:

  • A semiconductor doped with impurities will conduct electricity better and faster than a pure semiconductor.
