INTRODUCTION AND HISTORY 
In electronics, a
transistor
is a semiconductor device commonly usedto amplify or switch electronic signals. A transistor is made of a solid piece of asemiconductor material, with at least three terminals for connection to an externalcircuit. A voltage or current applied to one pair of the transistor's terminals changes thecurrent flowing through another pair of terminals. Because the controlled (output) power can be much larger than the controlling (input) power, the transistor providesamplification of a signal. The transistor is the fundamental building block of modernelectronic devices, and is used in radio, telephone, computer and other electronicsystems. Some transistors are packaged individually but most are found in integratedcircuits.
 INVENTION 
The first patent for the field-effect transistor principle was filed inCanada by Austrian-Hungarian physicist Julius Edgar Lilienfeld on October 22, 1925, but Lilienfeld published no research articles about his devices, and they were ignored by industry. In 1934 German physicist Dr. Oskar Heil patented another field-effecttransistor. There is no direct evidence that these devices were built, but later work in the1990s show that one of Lilienfeld's designs worked as described and gave substantialgain. Legal papers from the Bell Labs patent show that William Shockley and a co-worker at Bell Labs, Gerald Pearson, had built operational versions from Lilienfeld's patents, yet they never referenced this work in any of their later research papers or historical articles.
The first transistor 
The Bell team made many attempts to build such a system with varioustools, but generally failed. Setups where the contacts were close enough were invariablyas fragile as the original cat's whisker detectors had been, and would work briefly, if atall. Eventually they had a practical breakthrough. A piece of gold foil was glued to theedge of a plastic wedge, and then the foil was sliced with a razor at the tip of thetriangle. The result was two very closely spaced contacts of gold. When the plastic was pushed down onto the surface of a crystal and voltage applied to the other side (on the base of the crystal), current started to flow from one contact to the other as the basevoltage pushed the electrons away from the base towards the other side near thecontacts.
The point-contact transistor 
 
had been invented.
