Charge Carriers

Our Take

With semiconductors, for modelling purposes, it makes sense to use both electrons and the lack of electrons (holes) to model how current flows. So, as sometimes you use electrons and sometimes you use holes, it’s easier to just refer to both of them as “charge carriers” or even “current carriers” and move on with life.
