Anyone please explain to me what is conduction band and what are conduction band electrons? What energy do they have and how do they transfer it?
Transfer it to what ?Neha Sanghvi said:What energy do they have and how do they transfer it?
I mean how do they absorb or radiate energy ( continuously or discreetly )?Gokul43201 said:Transfer it to what ?
The conduction band is a part of the energy band structure of a solid material that contains free electrons which can move freely and conduct electricity.
The conduction band is separated from the valence band by an energy gap, where the valence band contains electrons that are tightly bound to the atoms and cannot conduct electricity.
The position of the conduction band is determined by the type of material and its atomic structure. Materials with more free electrons will have a lower conduction band, while materials with less free electrons will have a higher conduction band.
The conduction band can be manipulated through the addition of impurities or by applying an external electric field. Adding impurities can create extra energy levels in the conduction band, while an electric field can shift the position of the conduction band.
The conduction band is essential for the functioning of electronic devices as it allows for the flow of electric current. The manipulation of the conduction band is also crucial in controlling the conductivity and other properties of electronic materials used in devices.
