English term or phrase: acceptor
Definition from Tyco Electronics Corporation:
A material that is intentionally added to a pure semiconductor material to increase the population of free holes in that semiconductor, resulting in a net positive charge. A semiconductor that has had acceptor material added to it is called "p-type."

Example sentence(s):
  • For practical doping levels, it is fair to assume that the free electron concentration is equal to the concentration of donor atoms and the hole concentration is equal to the concentration of acceptor atoms.
  • Acceptor dopant in nitride semiconductors makes deep acceptor level (>100 meV) and generates few hole carriers into the valence band because of large electron affinity of N. Materials Research Society
  • The energy gained when an electron is taken up by an acceptor atom from the valence band of the crystal is the ionization energy of the atom.

Definition from Store norske leksikon:
(tekn., fys.) Stoff (fremmedatomer) som tilsettes elektriske halvledere for å lage P-type halvledere, dvs. halvledere med frie, positive ladningsbærere. Som akseptormateriale benyttes grunnstoffer fra 3. hovedgruppe i grunnstoffenes periodesystem. Bor er det vanligste akseptormateriale i silisiumhalvledere.

Example sentence(s):
  • Et doteringsstoff som tilfører flere elektroner i strukturen på grunn av løst bundne valenselektroner kalles en donor, mens et stoff som fanger inn elektroner og danner hull er en akseptor. - Wikipedia  
  • P-type materialer (P regioner) kalles for akseptor material fordi de kan ta opp (akseptere) elektroner. - Høgskolen i Vestfold
