Term (Index) Definition
resistivity  resistance per unit area and unit length; expressed in ohm-cm; the reciprocal of conductivity.
doping  introduction of dopant into semiconductor for the purpose of altering its electrical properties; allows control of resistivity/conductivity of semiconductor by several orders of magnitude; also used to convert p-type material into n-type material and vice versa.
four-point probe  the most common techniques for measuring resistivity of semiconductors; uses four equally spaced metal probes touching semiconductor, two outside probes are used to flow the current in semiconductor while two inside probes measure resulting voltage drop which is proportional to semiconductor resistivity (doping level).
