Unformatted text preview: EE2 Professor Harold Fetterman Feb. 12, 2008 Midterm Closed Book 1a. Light of wavelength A1 falls on a metal surface. In this metal surface X1 eV are required to remove an electron. What is the kinetic energy of a) the fastest and slowest emitted photoelectrons? b) what is the stopping potential? c) What is the cut off wavelength for this metal? Explain, in a few sentences, the main point that this experiment demonstrates. 1b. We looked at commutators of operators [A,B ] .=. AB-BA. What are the values of [px , x ] and [px , y ]. Also find the value of [E , t]. What does it mean for measurements when [A, B] = 0 ? What does AEAt 2 h / 2 mean in terms of a physical system with lifetime At ? 2a.In the figure below an electron is in a two dimensional box with the ‘Px wavefunction corresponding to an energy of 4 eV. mu»! ~a/2 8/2 W. ' 1'by What is the total energy of this 2D system? If the ‘15 wavefunction was raised to an n = 3 level what would the total energy be? 2b. A energy band is approximately ﬁtted by the expression: ) Where a is a lattice constant. A) calculate the effective mass a k=o and at the zone boundary k = n/a. Also find the value of k for minimum electron velocity. 2k2 E(k) 2 E0 (1 — e’“ 3a. Looking at the Density of states for electrons in two dimensions we were able to get expressions for the total number of occupied states as a function of energy. a) Find the value of EF as a function of n and b) the average energy <E> (at T = 0) c) Finally, ﬁnd the average value of E2 ( <E2>). 3b. Using our equations for an intrinsic semiconductor and that n1 = pi . Show that Em lies below the middle of the bandgap by kT 1n (mn* /mp*)3/ 4. Also show that the product np is a function of bandgap and is equal to n12 Now taking 11 type material (Na z 0) the highest operating temperature is when the # of thermally generated carriers In is equal to 1/ 10 the number contributed by impurities m = 0.1 Na, Write an expression for Tmax . 2U?) 2 471‘ V(2m)% 5% two—dimensional ha 2v 3 g<a)de=4"’"Adsr 20’) (1/3: 8w - d VII3 N "' .

### 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
