The resistivity of a semi-conductor increases with temperature.
The atoms of semi-conductor vibrate with larger amplitude at higher temperatures thereby increasing its resistivity.

By increasing the temperature, the conductance of a conductor and a semiconductor
After ordinary temperature, an increase in temperature increases the conductivity of:
With increase in temperature in an intrinsic semi-conducter, the ratio of conduction electrons and holes is
