In semiconductors and insulators, the conduction band is the range of electron energy, higher than that of the valence band, sufficient to make the electrons free to accelerate under the influence of an applied electric field and thus constitute an electric current. Semiconductors may cross this conduction band when they are excited.
Semiconductor band structure
See electrical conduction and semiconductor for a more detailed description of band structure.
