ionic conductance
1. A measure of the ability of an individual ion in an electrolyte to carry a current, assuming that no interaction between ions is taking place.
2. The contribution of a given type of ion to the total equivalent conductance in the limit of infinite dilution.
ionic conduction
The movement of charges within a semiconductor due to the displacement of ions within the crystal lattice.

An external source of energy is required to maintain this movement.

ionic equivalent conductance
1. In physical chemistry, the contribution that each individual ion makes toward an electrolyte's overall ability to conduct current.
2. The contribution made by each ion species of a salt toward an electrolyte's equiviconductance.
ionic semiconductor
1. A solid in which the electrical conductivity from the flow of ions predominates over that from the movement of electrons or holes.
2. A solid whose electrical conductivity is due primarily to the movement of ions rather than that of electrons and holes.
3. A semiconductor whose primary charge carriers are ions instead of electrons and holes.
1. Not reducible; incapable of being reduced or of being diminished or simplified further: "He produced the irreducible minimum."
2. Incapable of being brought into a different condition or form.
3. Impossible to reduce to a desired, simpler, or smaller form or amount.
