Page 2 of 8 Problem 1 (24 points) Consider a uniformly doped p-type silicon bar 1 mm by 1 mm in cross section. You are told that the equilibrium hole concentration, p o , in this sample is 10 16 cm -3 , and that it contains boron with a concentration of 1.5 x 10 16 cm -3 along with another dopant of unknown identity and concentration. The minority carrier lifetime is 10 -5 s, n i = 10 10 cm -3 , µ e = 1600 cm 2 /V-s, and µ h = 600 cm 2 /V-s. (a) What is the type and concentration of the other dopant? Suggest a possible identity for this other dopant. Type: Concentration: cm -3 Possible identity: (b) What is the room temperature resistivity, , in this sample?
