1. Overview of MOS electrostatics under bias Built-in potential across MOS structure increases from φ B to φ B + V GB Oxide forbids current flow J=0 everywhere in semiconductor Need drift = -diffusion in SCR Must maintain boundary condition at Si/SiO 2 interface E ox / E s 3 Application of bias: How can this be accommodated simultaneously? quasi-equilibrium situation with potential build-up across MOS equal to φ B + V GB 6.012 Spring 2009 Lecture 7 2

Important consequence of quasi-equilibrium: Boltzmann relations apply in semiconductor [they were derived starting from J n = J p =0] n ( x ) = n i e q φ ( x ) kT q ( x ) kT p ( x ) = n i e and 2 np = n i at every x 6.012 Spring 2009 Lecture 7 3
