What is Semiconductor Material

Describing Nature Through Visual Data
Has conductivity between a conductor (most metals, for example copper) and an insulator (such as glass). Properties of a semiconductor, its moving electrons and electron holes in a crystal lattice can be explained by quantum physics. Silicon crystals are semiconductive materials; they are used in microelectronics and photovoltaics used for direct conversion of sunlight to electricity with the use of solar panels.

This chapter examines links between the developments in selected technologies and our ways of teaching and learning. The focus is on some domains that are developing especially fast. A postulate follows that including knowledge about developments in science and current tools into the school curricula requires immediate attention. Enhancing the curricula with information about dynamically developing branches of science would likely exert a profound effect on making informed, successful decisions about future careers of students. The following text is about a novel approach to visual way of learning and instruction about processes and products. The visual approach relates to learning about natural processes and the current ways we capture their essence. Learning about advances in science requires application of graphical ways of presentation; the use of internet and digital media by instructors, professionals, and students; and making knowledge visualization an integral part of the learning process.
