The design of most Peltier devices requires the use of both an n-type semiconductor and a p-type semiconductor.
Like diodes, the simple solar cell consists of n-type semiconductor material that contains an excess of electrons and a p-type material which has excess space for electrons or positive 'holes' which can be occupied by electrons.
But that's not all, because joining a p-type semiconductor to an n-type semiconductor offers a way to finely control the flow of electric current, and is the foundation for our digital world.
The electric field "swept" the oxygen vacancies towards the film's top surface, creating an n-type semiconductor in that portion of the film, while the immobile calcium ions created a p-type semiconductor in the bottom portion.
When the researchers replaced the rod's two end thiophenes with a perfluoroarene group (a ring of six carbons decorated with fluorines), the organic molecule behaved like an n-type semiconductor. When the researchers instead replaced the next two thiophenes from the ends, the molecule behaved as a p-type semiconductor.
