Invited paper History of Semiconductors

By Lidia Łukasiak and Andrzej Jakubowski


Abstract—The history of semiconductors is presented beginning with the first documented observation of a semiconductor effect (Faraday), through the development of the first devices (point-contact rectifiers and transistors, early field-effect transistors) and the theory of semiconductors up to the contemporary devices (SOI and multigate devices). Keywords—band theory, laser, Moore’s law, semiconductor, transistor
