Semiconductors: Field-Effect Transistors

Unlike the three-layer PNP and NPN transistors we've already studied, field-effect transistors (FETs) make use of the electric field that appears between semiconductor regions when external voltages are applied. In fact, that's how these devices get their general name: they use the effect of the electric field.
