Hello, folks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Q: How can one measure the density of states of a semiconductor and a conductor? I would imagine you want to measure the charge carrier density and then you can calculate the density of states. If so, what observable(s) can yield the charge carrier density? How can you measure these observables?

The question looks long, but the answer should be condensed into a basic principle...I hope.
