|Abstract:||Semiconductors were discovered in early 19th century, when a decrease in resistance with increasing temperature was observed in certain materials . Metal-semiconductor diodes and junction diodes were studied in 1870s  and used widely in radio frequency receivers during Second World War . The first solid state transistors made of germanium was demonstrated by Bell labs in 1947 . These solid state devices were capable of replacing bulky vacuum tubes with even better electrical characteristics. The potential of transistors in data storage and processor applications attracted a large focus from scientific and industrial community. The advances in semiconductor device technology, thus made over a period of time have brought a major breakthrough in modern day technology and development. With the development of light emitting diodes and photodetectors the possibility of optical data communication was realized , which brought about revolution in the world of modern communication and paved the path for further path breaking discoveries in the field.|
