Les semi-conducteurs sont des corps solides dont la conductivité électrique se situe entre celle des métaux et celle des isolants. La conductivité électrique des solides est une propriété qui est due à la présence d'électrons libres de se déplacer dans le milieu et de générer ainsi un courant électrique.
