You are allowed one 8-1/2" X 11" sheet (both sides) of notes. Note: Potentially useful reference charts are given on pages 7 and 8 (tear off to use if you like). Show all your work. Partial credit may be given. If you think you need something that you can't remember, write down what you need and what you'd do if you remembered it. Unless otherwise indicated, you may assume Si in equilibrium at T=300K. Look for the simple, straightforward way to solve the problem for the level of accuracy required. Don't get entangled in unnecessary algebra. As in real life, some problems may give you more information than you need. Don't assume that all information must be used! It's your job to decide what's relevant to the solution. You will have 25 minutes to complete this exam. There are 2 problems on a total of 8 pages. 1. An energy band diagram for a region of silicon semiconductor material is shown in the figure on the opposite page. Assume T = 300K. a) Using the boxes in the figure, identify and label the unlabeled energy levels on the diagram. [5] b) Do equilibrium conditions prevail?
