Shockley Read Hall model (SRH) Excess carriers As an example, consider an n-type semiconductor. Let us assume that excess minority carriers of density p are created by any one of the three processes we saw in the last slide and the minority carrier (hole)

Unformatted text preview: density can be expressed as • p = p no + ∆ p • Excess majority carriers are either produced in the generation process itself or they flow into the region where the minority carriers are present such that the excess majority carrier density ∆ n is equal to ∆ p . • The net recombination rate U is equal to the difference between the recombination rate R and the generation rate G . U = R - G Continuity Equation...

### 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.
