    The origin of the familiar valence band-forbidden gap-conduction band features of the electronic energy level scheme of a crystalline solid is developed according to 1) the extension of the atomic energy level scheme for individual atoms, 2) examination of the quantized momentum spectrum of a valence electron gas in a periodic potential enclosure, and 3) analogy with the pass-band and stop-band fe...

    The principal aim of this paper is to present the concepts associated with the electrical properties of semiconductors. Simplified ways of envisioning holes, electrons, and diode and transistor action are presented. Intrinsic or pure semiconductor material is discussed first, followed by discussions of n- and p-type material, p-n junction diodes, photodiodes, and transistors. The paper is aimed at...

  • Physical Electronics Underlying Junction Transistor Characteristics

    In most transistors which are useful to engineering, densities of electrons and holes are low enough so that random energies have the classical Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution. Also, the customary large ratios of majority-to-minority carrier densities result in majority-carrier flow occurring in response to electric gradients, and minority-carrier flow by diffusion due to concentration gradients. S... View full abstract»

    Semiconductor diodes have achieved great prominence in the electronic industry because of their outstanding performance and great versatility. They are consequently of increasing importance in the education of electrical engineers. Since new diodes are being continually developed, it is essential that the educational emphasis be placed on underlying principles rather than on the devices themselves... View full abstract»

  • Solid-State Energy Conversion Devices

    Publication Year: 1960, Page(s):134 - 137

    Conversions of energy in general are considered first, with emphasis on schemes appropriate for energy conversion devices. For the purposes of this paper, the vast numbers of conversion possibilities are restricted to solid-state devices. The direct coupling between heat and electricity is singled out for more detailed discussion of a useful figure of merit. The present state of the thermoelectric... View full abstract»

  • Low-Temperature Devices

    The basic operating principles of three low-temperature devices the maser, the cryotron, and the cryosar are discussed. In masers the process of stimulated emission of radiation is used to produce an extremely low noise amplifier, with all practical solid state masers thus far employing the electron spins in paramagnetic salts. The cryotron and the cryosar are both primarily intended for computer ... View full abstract»

    The meanings of the words microcircuits, molecular electronics, integrated circuits, and functional devices are examined with the conclusions that, as generally used, the only sensible definitions are as follows: a microcircuit is one in which connections are made between circuit elements on a microscopic scale. Molecular electronics, integrated circuits, and functional devices all have essentiall... View full abstract»
