Handout 2 ECE 315, Cornell University 2 PN Junction The PN junction was the first pure semiconductor device made operational, prior to that the devices were metal-semiconductor By definition the PN junction is a device where the P region and the N region are in intimate contact The PN junction is present in virtually every semiconductor device-see next slides

Handout 2 ECE 315, Cornell University 6 Thought experiment: bring two pieces of semiconductor together. What happens to the carriers? Far from the junction nothing happens-called quasi neutral regions Around the junction currents of drift And diffusion must cancel- space charge region

Handout 2 ECE 315, Cornell University 16 In order for the device to communicate to the outside world metal contacts need to be added. These contacts form metal semiconductor junctions. The potential drop across these junctions causes the device terminals to operate at the same potential
