4. Can you say anything about the rate of recombination?

5. What is intrinsic semiconductor?


If you failed try to answer these questions again after doing the exercises given below the text.

If the temperature of a silicon crystal is above absolute zero, some of the valence electrons will receive sufficient energy to free themselves from covalent bonds.

When an electron leaves the covalent bond it leaves behind it an ‘absence of an electron’. This absence of an electron consists of a missing negative charge ‘e’, and it is equivalent to a positive charge called ‘a hole’.

Each hole is able to attract electrons and can be filled by a passing electron. This process is called recombination. Recombination causes a continual loss of holes and free electrons. The rate of recombination of holes and electrons is always equal to the rate of production of new holes and electrons. The total number of free electrons and holes is constant. The material having equal concentrations of mobile electrons and holes is called an intrinsic semiconductor.

18. Divide into 2 groups. Group 1 translates Extract A and group 2 – Extract B of the text “Supernovae” with a dictionary in writing.

Extract A

A supernova (the plural is supernovae) is the explosion of a star. They are extremely important for understanding our Galaxy. They heat up the interstellar medium, distribute heavy elements throughout the Galaxy, and accelerate cosmic rays. But what causes a star to explode? And is there more than one type of supernova? Indeed, there seems to be two distinct types of supernovae – those which occur for a single massive star and those which occur because of mass transfer onto a white dwarf in a binary system. As you will see, however, it is only what gets the process started toward the explosion which differs between the two types.

Stars which are 8 times or more massive than our Sun end their lives in a most spectacular way; they go supernova. A supernova explosion occurs when there is no longer enough fuel for the fusion process in the core of the star to create an outward pressure which combats the inward gravitational pull of the star's great mass. First, the star swells into a red supergiant...at least on the outside. On the inside, the core yields to gravity and begins shrinking. As it shrinks, it grows hotter and denser. A new series of nuclear reactions begin to occur, temporarily halting the collapse of the core. But alas, it is only temporary.

Extract B

When the core contains essentially just iron, it has nothing left to fuse. Fusion in the core ceases. In less than a second, the star begins the final phase of gravitational collapse. The core temperature rises to over 100 billion degrees as the iron atoms are crushed together. The repulsive force between the nuclei is overcome by the force of gravity. So the core compresses but then recoils. The energy of the recoil is transferred to the envelope of the star, which then explodes and produces a shock wave. The shock then propels that matter out into space. The material that is exploded away from the star is now known as a supernova remnant. Another type of supernova involves the sudden explosion of a white dwarf star in a binary star system. A white dwarf is the endpoint for stars of up to about 8 times that of the Sun. The remaining white dwarf has a mass less than 1.4 times the mass of the Sun, and is about the size of the Earth. In a binary star system, the companion star of the white dwarf is often a red giant. The stars may be close enough to each other and the red giant large enough, that material may flow from the red giant onto the white dwarf. This results in a thermonuclear detonation of the entire star.
