Hello. "Hypothetically" lets say that I have a material that intrinsically behaves like a highly degenerate p-type direct gap semiconductor (significant p-orbital contribution to the DOS at and above the fermi level). Can anyone think of what in the world such a material may be useful for? I know that such doping is useful for ensuring a good ohmic contact with a metal, but what devices might that be useful for? Keep in mind, this is intrinsically heavily p-type, I didn't dope it to get it that way and so there is no gradient of p-type carrier (which is typically desirable for pn or pin diodes). Thanks anyone who reads this.
