Page 2 of 8 Problem 1 (28points; 4 points each for Parts a, b, c, e, f; 8 points for d) The first several parts of this problem concern the photodiode illustrated to the left below. It is illuminated with light which generates M hole-electron pairs/cm 2 -s across the plane at x = 1 µm, as indicated in the figure. There contacts are ohmic, and the n-type region between x = 0 and 2 µm is doped to a level of 10 16 cm -3 . The p-region between x = - 1µm and 0 is doped to a level of 10 16 cm -3 . Throughout the device the minority carrier diffusion length is much greater than 2 µm, µ e is 1600 cm 2 /V-s, and µ h is 600 cm 2 /V-s; the cross-sectional area is A. The terminals are shorted, as shown. M p'(1µm) p'(x) I n p x (µm) x (µm) -1 0 1 2 - 1 0 1 2 a) Plot the excess minority carrier profile in the diode on the axes provided above on the right. b) What is the current, I, measured in the external short circuit? I = c) In Exam #1 we looked at adding a 0.2 µm thick n+ region (N D = 10 18 cm -3 ) before the ohmic contact on one end of an n-type bar, as shown below to the left. Doing this greatly reduces the minority carrier flux to the right-hand ohmic contact.
