ECE 536 Problem Set 2 Due Monday Oct. 6 1. Consider an abrupt P+N junction with N a =2x10 18 cm -3 and N D =1x10 15 cm -3 . If the minority carrier lifetime is τ p =1x10 -6 sec. a) Calculate and graph the p n (x) for a long diode of length L=100um (boundary condition p n (L)=p n0 ) . b) Calculate the current for a forward bias of .5V. c) Repeat a&b for a short diode of length 2.3 microns (boundary condition p n (L)=0). 2. Using the concept of quasi Fermi levels show that the slope of the quasi Fermi levels for electrons and holes must be approximately constant in the depletion region of a PN junction 3. In a one sided P+N junction the maximum value of electric field possible before device breakdown or failure is 1x10 6 V/cm. What is the maximum depletion width for N D doping of a. a) 1x10 15 cm -3 b. b) 1x10 17 cm -3 c. c) 1x10 19 cm -3 4. A Si MOS device has an oxide which is 200 angstroms thick. a. Draw the band diagram of the structure to scale if the doping in the p region is 1x10 15 cm -3 . Indicate clearly the banding bending.
