Semiconductor Properties -   Charge Carriers

combination called an electron-hole pair

solid-state analogue of the ion pair in gases

electron in conduction band can be made to move under the influence of an applied electric field

hole representing a net positive charge will also tend to move in an electric field, but in a direction opposite that of the electron

motion of both of these charges contributes to the observed conductivity of the material
