  N-type Dopants
Some of the most common n-type dopants are located in group 15 of the periodic table. One example of such an dopant is the element phosphorus (P). The n-type dopant adds negatively charged electrons to the semiconductor, thus the name. Sometimes these dopants are called donators because they donate electrons to the semiconductor.
