3.091 Fall Term 2004 Homework Quiz #5A solution outline You wish to make p-type germanium. (i) Name a suitable dopant. You need to dope with an electron donor, which means an element from Group 13. So this gives you B, Al, Ga, and In as candidates. (ii) Name the majority charge carrier in the doped material. The majority charge carrier is the hole, which moves in the valence band. (iii) Draw a schematic energy band diagram of the doped material and label (i) the valence band, (ii) the conduction band, (iii) the band gap energy, and (iv) an energy level

    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.
