ISBN Cited by: P-Type Silicon —I • Trivalent impurities e.g., boron, aluminum, indium, and gallium have 3 valence electrons. • When boron is added to Si, every boron atom’s three valence electrons are locked upFile Size: 2MB. Electronics is the processing of electrical charges as information. Nam June Paik, one of the pioneers of the field of electronic art, makes this distinction very clear by commenting on "electricity" and "electronics": "Electricity deals with mass and weight; electronics deals with information: one is muscle, the other is nerve."
