Use "n-type" in a sentence
"The junctions in a transistor are between bits of silicon doped to conduct electrons known as n-type material, because electrons are negatively charged, and p-type areas doped to conduct positively charged holes in the crystal lattice, which are places where electrons should be, but aren't."
"An electrical wire located on the far end of the n-type layer gathers the suffocating electrons and shepherds them back across."
"The silicon-phosphorous layer is known as the negative, or n-type layer, because it has lots of spare electrons."
