Remember to write the units of the various quantiﬁes that you calculate
Use the back side of each page if you need extra space. All formulas and units that you need are given on the last page 1. (20 points) A microelectronic capacitor consists of a 0.1 pm thick, square ﬁlm of SiO2 (er = 4) dielectric sandwiched between two conducting layers. The conducting layers are
square strips with each side measuring 50 um. Calculate the capacitance of the
capacitor. (assume 60 = 10''1 F/ m) a) Another capacitor of the same dimensions has a layer of Gallium Arsenide (er = 13) in
between. For a voltage of SOmV (50 x 10'3V), how much additional charge does this
capacitor store? (relative to the SiO2 capacitor) 1 b) What is the maximum charge we can store in the SiO2 capacitor, if the dielectric
strength of SiO2 is 3 x 107 V/m (dielectric strength is the maximum electric ﬁeld that
is admissible in SiOz). (Hint: V = Ed) 34:04 um : axuo‘7m. Er=4

a) In cylindrical coordinates, the equation given below can be used to ﬁnd the ﬂux
density, D from the volume charge density. While simulating the ﬁelds, we’ve stored the p values at subsequent discrete radii in an array rho i.e. rho[i] is the charge
density at the radius r[i]. Find an expression for D[i]. _1_a(rD) =
r 3r p b) Rearrange the following ﬁnite difference equation and obtain the corresponding
partial differential equation (similar to the one above). (D — flux density , A  Area , r
 radius , rho  charge density, dr — spacing between consecutive r[i]) A[i—1]D[i—l]+ rho [i]A[i]dr
A[i] D[i]= 4. (10 points) A spherical charge distribution exists in free space in the region 0 < r < a and
is given by p(r) = po(1 — rz/az) (C/m3). The electric ﬁeld in the region outside the
spherical charge is given by E : 2/00a3 (V/m) forr>a 15801‘2
Find the voltage difference between two points A (at radius r3) and B (at radius rb). (Assume A is further away from the origin than B'and ra , rb > a, i.e. both points are
outside the charged region) List of units 1) Charge  Coulombs (C) 2) Electric Flux Density(D) & Surface Charge Density(ps) — Coulombs/meter2(C/mz)
