P-type

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

[p(ositive)-type, from the behavior of electron holes as carriers of positive charge.]

p-type

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

To overcome that, Menon and collaborators in the laboratory of Assistant Professor Shannon Yee designed a device with thousands of dots composed of alternating p-type and n-type polymers in a closely-packed layout.
After RDS and furnace sintering the resultant NiO coatings were sensitized with erythrosine B dye and corresponding p-type dye- sensitized solar cells were fabricated and characterized.

Compared with other traditional mono-crystalline PV modules, the mass production output power for N-type PERT mono-crystalline modules (based on 60 pieces of 156mm*156mm) is 10~15W higher than the average industrial level, CTM of this module is 2 percent lower than traditional P-type modules, and the efficiency of the module reaches over 18.

While silicon has to be extrinsically doped (inserting another element into its crystal structure) to make it n-type or p-type in order for it to work in a semiconductor chip, the BP crystals can operate as both n-type and p-type or something in between, without doping.
Compared to p-type silicon solar cells, n-type cells do not suffer from light-induced degradation and feature a higher tolerance to common metal impurities.
