Why do we prefer semiconductor

Why are using semiconductors instead of conductors in our diodes

... Okay, the first question to answer and it's the most basic - are you aware of the difference between semi-conductor and a conductor? Share it with us. 

Semi conductors have a crystal lattice structure that permits 'doping', which allows us to modify its behaviour.A conductor cannot be doped and remains a free electron material.
