A CDE Definition
An element diffused into pure silicon in order to alter its electrical characteristics and make it more conductive. Boron, phosphorous, antimony and arsenic are common dopants. See doping.
Altering the electrical conductivity of a semiconductor material, such as silicon, by chemically combining it with foreign elements. It results in an excess of electrons (n-type) or a lack of electrons (p-type) in the silicon. See n-type silicon and silicon.
