Two instructional experiments related to the temperature dependence of the electrical conductivity and to the thermionic emission properties of single crystal silicon have been performed in ultra-high vacuum. The measurements are straightforward, using standard electronic components, and can be successfully completed by senior electrical engineering students in one semester. The experiments form a good introduction for undergraduate students who expect to do further work in areas related to semiconductors and/or ultra-high vacuum.
