Although pure silicon is an insulator , how does it behave as a semiconductor on heating ?

No comments

On heating the thermal energy of particles increase, which allow the faster movements of electrons and the holes at the same time. thus due this the conductance increase with increase with temperature. at lower temperature the thermal energy is low and the movement of electrons and hole decreases.
