on the P—type side of the junction is 1016 cm‘3 and the uniform doping concentration on the N-type side is
2x10l7 cm'3. Calpolium has an intrinsic carrier concentration of 8x106 cm"3 and an energy gap of 2.0 eV at a temperature of 291 K. Please determine the following quantities at 50°C. +223K ; 5 A) Determine the intrinsic electron concentration of Calpolium at 50°C. 2 3251’ ’1‘257550 472%) ( ﬂex/[£- ’ 41 M
