Question:

Classify each of the following as being either a p-type or an n-type semiconductor:

(i) Ge doped with In (ii) B doped with Si.

Solution:

(i) Ge (a group 14 element) is doped with In (a group 13 element). Therefore, a hole will be created and the semiconductor generated will be a p-type semiconductor.

(ii) B (a group 13 element) is doped with Si (a group 14 element). Thus, a hole will be created and the semiconductor generated will be a p-type semiconductor.
