Problem: If you want to dope GaAs to make an n-type semiconductor with an element to replace Ga, which element(s) would you pick?

FREE Expert Solution

We have to determine which element should Ga in GaAs be replaced with to make it an N-type semiconductor.


Semiconductors are materials whose conductance is between conductors (such as metals) and nonconductors (such as nonmetals).

There are two types of semiconductors:
