Integrated Circuit Terminology
group five elements in the periodic table such as phosphorus, arsenic and antimony have one more electron in the outer most energy level than silicon. When these atoms are introduced into silicon, an impurity level is created very near the conduction band. At zero degrees Kelvin the impurity level is filled, at room temperature sufficient energy is available to excite electrons from the impurity level into the conduction band. Because these elements introduce impurity levels that donate electrons they are referred to as donors.

A donor in general is a person, organization or government who donates something voluntarily. The term is usually used to represent a form of pure altruism but sometimes used when the payment for a service is recognized by all parties as representing less than the value of the donation and that the motivation is altruistic. In business law, a donor is someone who is giving the gift, and a donee the person receiving the gift.
