(1 point) Signature: For today’s exam you may assume for Silicon at room temperature that the intrinsic carrier concentration, n,- = 1010 cm'3, with B=l.08 x 103' cm'6 K'3. 1. Semiconductor Fundamentals A piece of Silicon has a uniform donor concentration of 1018 cm‘3 and a uniform acceptor concentration of 2x1017 cm'3. An applied electric ﬁeld of +10 kV/cm exists in the piece of Silicon. Please determine the following quantities at room temperature with VT = 0.025 V. You may use the mobility approximations from p. 61 of Jaeger & Blalock. ﬁgﬁzﬁ} {2%} CmZ/y.5 m1 . . . 3'1” "' 3 71 3; am (3 pomts) A) Determine the electron concentration)? 3 4/ W)”: E + ‘ T i -3 ' _ ‘ 0 ‘ I _/ M Mg : Wig”, )% ,Qx/a (m .5 L3 X m3? 011—3 ._ ’7 x3 /7 -g n z A? ~44 : m'gcm 3 “2"” M : 3M9 6’” 6% da‘kmﬂ/s >72»; 5a yaw/7 #27” r0 ‘(55 ﬂMﬂ/WV 15/ “if mégﬁwm \$0LI/77 . ~ ‘ (3 points) B) Determine the hole concentration. v g 4. 3 m2 [fife _5 .63 x10“? 0; ’72:“: [75:12ch I") gx/p [M (3 points) C) Determine the electron mobilitng 3 M: Wye/£6 :/,.2X/t7 (M ;2 70 i y a J [1% 5’” 2 » ‘22 + \$0" =- 1 7* : “WSW; ‘r’ : . ﬂ” — A]? ’+//.31/a"7(»” V} V 5 * “5 (3 points) D) Determine the electron diffusivity cm a W2 .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
