In order to answer the question “Semiconductor or Quantum Physics, which recent discovery has proved more valuable to modern man?” you are to preform research and investigate the following areas.
Semiconductors and Diodes.
Quantum Physics Principles, including Black Body Radiation, The Photoelectric and Compton Effect, and the Bohr Atom and Atomic Spectra.
Your research must include the following 4 sources of information, and 6 additional sources (minimum).
1. Experiment: Energy Conversion in different Light Bulbs (Appendix A)
2. Catalyst: Changing the Globe – ABC TV Science
3. Einstein’s Revolutionary Light–Quantum Hypothesis∗ (Appendix B)
4. Photoelectric Properties of Ionically Bombarded Silicon, (Appendix C)
Use your research information to prepare (and write) a report (1000-1500) providing information and detailing particulars on the theories of thermodynamics, semiconductors and quantum physics, what it is (i.e. exploration, evaluation, discussion and justify of your gathered information and observations).
In order to answer the question “Semiconductor or Quantum Physics, which recent discovery has proved more valuable to modern man?” you will need to analyse and evaluate the work of the Physicists involved and decide on the importance (with justification) of their work in answering the question, “Semiconductor or Quantum Physics, which recent discovery has proved more valuable to modern man?” Comprehensive bibliographic detail (in text-referencing) must be included.
*Answer through the context of the light-bulb and solar cells. And all sources must be word excluding the 4 provided above and 2 can be a source I will provide for you to check and see. Please read the tasksheet,criteria sheet and scaffolding file I will send as they are very important and I want to get a A for this paper.
