EEE 352—Spring 2008 Homework 6 3.23 Determine the total number of energy states in GaAs between E c and E c + k B T at 300 K. The number of states per unit volume is given by integrating the density of states over this energy range: 3 23 2 34 23 31 2 2 / 3 2 2 0 2 / 1 2 / 3 2 2 10 27 . 3 ) 10 055 . 1 ( 300 10 38 . 1 10 1 . 9 067 . 0 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 2 1 × = × × × = = = m T mk dE E m n B T B k E π π π h h 3.30 Determine the probability that an electron is occupied by an electron if the state is above the Fermi level by (a) k B T, (b) 5k B T, and (c) 10k B T.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
