EMS 172 Profs. Y. Takamura and A. Moulé, 2009 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, DAVIS Department of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science EMS 172: Electronic, Magnetic, and Optical Properties of Materials Homework 5 - Solutions Due Date: Tuesday, Nov. 10 th , 2009 in class Note: You must show all the steps you used to obtain your answer in order to receive full credit. 1. Extrinsic Semiconductors [34 pts] [Computer problem] Consider an n -type silicon sample that has been doped with 2x10 15 phosphorus atoms per cm 3 . The donor level for P in Si is 0.045 eV below the conduction band energy. (a) Use your Matlab / Mathematica program from HW 4 to create plots of log(N e ) (#/m 3 ) vs. temperature AND log( N e ) (#/m 3 ) vs. (1/T) *1000 [K -1 ] for the full temperature range from 25 K < T < 700 K. Hand sketches will not be given full credit. Hint for making sure you get the correct magnitude on your plots: if you use ALL SI units for all the constants (Joules, kg, meters, etc…), you will get an answer for N i /N e with units of [#/m 3 ]. An ‘easy’ number to remember is that for Si, N i = 10 10 #/cm 3 at 300 K. As discussed in lecture, the full temperature range is broken down into three regimes, intrinsic , extrinsic , and freeze-out , and each of these regimes is described by a separate equation. In the freeze-out regime, the equation is given by: = = + T k E E N N N N B D C D C D e 2 ) ( exp 2 1 2 1 Label these three regimes in both of your plots. When creating your plots, consider the following questions: (i) What equation governs N e in the intrinsic regime? (ii) What equation governs N e in the extrinsic regime? [6 pts for perfect plot] [-1 pt for missing labels] [-1 plot if shape of curve is correct but magnitude of data is incorrect] [-1 pt if one of the regions is missing] [-1 pt if the transition regions are incorrect]
