ECE 440 Homework IV Fall 2009 Due: Friday, September 25, 2009 Print your name and netid legibly. Show all work leading to your answer clearly and neatly. Staple multiple pages. 1. A Si bar is 0.2 cm long and 200 µm 2 in cross-sectional area. Find the current at 300 K with 10 V applied to (a) the Si bar is doped with 1x10 17 /cm 3 gallium and (b) the Si bar is doped with 1x10 17 /cm 3 gallium and 2x10 17 /cm 3 arsenic. Refer to Fig. 3-23 or the mobility chart posted online.) (c) The silicon sample is grounded at x=0 and biased at +10 V at x=0.2 cm. Draw the corresponding energy band diagram for case (a). Solution: To find the current, use Ohm’s law. (1) IR V = (2) R V I / = We know bias so we need to find resistance. (3) σ ρ 1 = = A L A L R (4) A p n q L p n ) ( + = μ Substituting (13) into (11): (5) A L V p n q I p n + = ) ( This expression is only valid if the drift velocity of the carriers is below the saturation velocity. For silicon, the saturation velocity is s cm / 10 7 . (6) = s cm v cm V E s V cm 2 For Si bar is doped with 1x10 17 /cm 3 gallium.
