SOLID STATE DISKS DEFINITION (continued): …  further examples of solid-state devices.In a solid-state component, the current is confined to solid elements and compounds engineered specifically to switch and amplify it. Current flows in two forms: as negatively charged electrons, and as positively charged electron deficiencies called holes. In some semiconductors, the current consists mostly of electrons; in other semiconductors, it consists mostly of holes. Both the electron and the hole are called charge carriers.An example of a non-solid-state component is a cathode-ray tube (CRT). In this device, electrons flow freely through a vacuum …
