Difference between N-type semiconductors and P-type semiconductor

Following are the difference between N-type semiconductors and P-type semiconductor.

N-type semiconductor P-type semiconductor
It is type extrinsic semiconductor. It also type of extrinsic semiconductor.
In N-type semiconductor, electrons are majority carriers and holes are minority carriers. In P-type semiconductor, holes are majority carriers and electrons are minority carriers.
It has Larger electron concentration and less hole concentration. It has Larger hole concentration and less electron concentration.
Pentavalent impurities are added. Trivalent impurities are added.
It has donor energy levels very close to conduction band. It has acceptor energy levels very close to valance band.
