Who invented semiconductors?
History of Semiconductors In 1874, Karl Braun discovered and documented the first semiconductor diode effect. Braun observed that current flows freely in only one direction at the contact between a metal point and a galena crystal. In 1901, the very first semiconductor device, called “cat whiskers,” was patented.
