Are you interested in semiconductors? A semiconductor is an object or material with conductivity, or which attracts electricity, due to electron flow within the substance itself. This is often due to an impurity in the metal which is added most often with the intent of being used as a semiconductor. These make up the basis of most technologies from radios to modern computers and mobile devices. Materials which act as a semiconductor are most often solid, but actually can be liquid as well such as hydrogenated amorphous silicon.
When searching for a semiconductor you have several options to consider. There are a few things you will want to keep in mind as you are coming to a decision. First of course is the sort of electronics where it will be used. As mentioned there are different types, the solid form is the most common because it is more stable however in certain instances where the demand for electric flow is not as great or space is limited liquid options will be desirable. Next, there may be multiple companies that produce the type of conductor you need so compare the quality and other aspects. Price will be determined by the factors listed and the vendor.
Going over you options is recommended. Business.com provides several useful links.
