Semiconductors

A semiconductor is a common term used in the electronics and the computer field. Semiconductors are generally made from certain elements such as silicon, germanium, and chemical compounds such as lead sulfide.

Semiconductors have a special atomic structure that allows their conductivity properties (both good and not so good) to be controlled by energy from electric currents, electromagnetic fields, or even light sources. As an example, when you apply heat energy to a semiconductor you can increase its conductivity of electricity. These semiconductor properties make it possible to use them to make products such as transistors, integrated circuits, and many other types of electronic devices.

These 10 elements make up most of the matter in the universe.
