ECE230A Fall 2009 Solution for Homework #3 1. The intrinsic carrier concentration at room temperature (300K) for Ge and Si is 2.3x10 13 cm -3 and 1.1x10 10 cm -1 , respectively. The bandgap energy Eg,Ge=0.67 eV, Eg,Si = 1.1 eV. (a) Find the intrinsic concentrations of Ge and Si at 400K. (b) If Si is doped with shallow acceptors and shallow donors: N a =2x10 15 cm -3 and N d =1x10 15 cm -3 . Calculate the Fermi energy above the valence band edge. (c) If N d > N a , derive = + kT E E N n N N n N n d c c a d a exp ) ( 2 where E d is the energy of the donor state.
