What exactly is a concentration of acceptor in p-type semiconductor

  1. Jul 27, 2013 #1
    What exactly is a concentration of acceptor in p-type semiconductor? The symbol is Na.
    Lets say there's a Silicone, and it has 3 valence electrons, when it receives electrons (releases hole), it becomes negatively ionized, right? So that should mean Silicone is an acceptor, right? But what is concentration of acceptor?

    No, you misuunderstood me. I didn't mean Na as "Natrium" but just a symbol for concentration of acceptor in p-type semiconductor. It's actually Na.

    OK, but the answer still stands.
