Semiconductors are materials that have a small electronic bandgap. This bandgap prevents current from flowing at absolute zero, but thermally excited charge carriers can begin to flow at higher temperatures. Semiconductors, notably silicon, are at the heart of the modern microelectronics industry, and also have applications in light sources and detectors.
