Semimetals

Semimetals are sometimes called metalloids. They have both metallic and nonmetallic properties. Semimetals are semiconductors; in other words, they are not as conducting as metals and are not insulators like the nonmetals. (i.e. Silicon and gallium arsenide (GaAs) are used widely in the semiconductor industry.)
