Our Take

An intrinsic semiconductor material is doped or added with impurity atoms to increase its conductivity. The result could be an extrinsic semiconductor material that is an n-type or p-type. This increases the mobile carriers thus increasing conductivity and allows for some interesting areas where the different doping levels meet, creating the real magic of semiconductors. Or, I guess, the real amazing technology and applications of semiconductors.
