1. An electrical connection.
2. The place where two different pieces of semi-conductor material join. The junctions are usually called NP or PN depending on the designed flow of electricity, because of the types of semi-conductor materials, N-type and P-type. This special junction is what makes the right configuration of semi-conductors work as a transistor or a diode.
