group three elements in the periodic table such as boron, B, aluminum, Al, gallium, Ga, or indium, In, have one less  electron in the outer most energy level than  silicon, Si. When these atoms are introduced into silicon, an  impurity level is created near the  valence band. At zero degrees kelvin the  impurity level is empty, at room temperature sufficient energy is available to excite electrons from the valence band into the impurity level. Because these Elements introduce impurity levels that accept electrons, they are referred to as acceptors. See also donor.

Acceptor Definition from Law Dictionaries & Glossaries
The 'Lectric Law Library
Contracts. The person who agrees to pay a bill of exchange drawn upon him. There cannot be two separate acceptors of a bill of exchange, e. g. an acceptance by the drawee, and another for the honor of some party to the bill.

The acceptor of a bill is the principal debtor, and the drawer the surety. He is bound, though he accepted without consideration, and for the sole accommodation of the drawer. By his acceptance he admits the drawer's handwriting, for, before acceptance it was incumbent upon him to inquire into the genuineness of the drawer's handwriting. When once made, the obligation of the acceptor is irrevocable.

The liability of the acceptor cannot in general be released or discharged, otherwise than by payment, or by express release or waiver, or by the act of limitations. What amounts to a waiver and discharge of the acceptor's liability, must depend on the circumstances of each particular case.
