Related to N-type: n-type semiconductor

N-type

 (ĕn′tīp′)
adj.
Made of material, usually a semiconductor such as silicon, that has been doped with impurities so that it has an excess of conductive electrons.

[n(egative)-type, from the negative charge of the conductive electrons.]

n-type

adj
1. (Electronics) (of a semiconductor) having more conduction electrons than mobile holes
2. (Electronics) associated with or resulting from the movement of electrons in a semiconductor: n-type conductivity.
