5 cation % (cat. %)) of La2 O3 is added to BaTiO3 and fired under normal oxidizing conditions, the La3þ ions substitute for Ba2þ . and the defect LaBa is compensated by an electron in the conduction band derived from the Ti 3d states (see Eq. 19)). LaBa and, in general, any substituent ion with a higher positive charge than the . ion it replaces is termed a ‘donor’. In some circumstances LaBa can be @ species, two dopant ions to every vacancy, or by one VTi@@ to compensated by VBa . every four LaBa .

Therefore in an electric field the electrons are able to acquire additional kinetic energy and, as in the case of a metal, a current will flow. However, if the band is full, then at zero temperature the electrons cannot normally acquire energy from an electric field and so no current flows. g. 16 aJ), then at around room temperature (where kT % 0:025 eV) some electrons can be thermally excited across the gap into an empty band where they can conduct. In addition to electrons excited into the socalled ‘conduction band’, there are also empty electronic states in the previously full ‘valence band’, allowing the valence electron population as a whole to accept energy from the field.

11, and to n-type semiconductivity. g. boron) to silicon leads to an empty electron state, or positive hole, which can be ionized from the effective single negative charge Àe on the B atom. 01 eV, as might be expected. Therefore the doping of silicon with boron leads to the 34 Fig. 11 silicon). g. 01 eV above the top of the valence band, as shown in Fig. 11, and to p-type semiconductivity. In the case of n- or p-type semiconductivity the temperature dependence of the conductivity is similar to that in Eq.
