The major difference between conductor, insulator and semiconductor is defined by the flow of charged particles under the influence of electric field. When any voltage is applied to the conductor, electric charged particles easily flow from valence band to conduction band. Thus conductor is a good conductor of electricity. c. Semiconductor. Semi conductor are those material which has the conduction property in between conductor and insulator. It means semi conductor do not allow the free electron to flow as conductor allow. In the same way semi conductor do not block the current as insulator do. For example silicon, boron, carbon etc. Some of the other differences between P Type and N Type Semiconductors include the fact that P Type semiconductors are created by doping an intrinsic semiconductor with acceptor impurities, whereas the n type is created by doping an intrinsic semiconductor with donor impurities.
