ECE 230B Midterm (Winter 2010) Assume silicon, room temperature, complete ionization. 1. (20 pts) An abrupt p-n junction with N d = 10 18 cm -3 and N a = 10 17 cm -3 is forward biased at 0.5 V. (a) Draw the band diagram. Label the Fermi levels and indicate where the voltage appears. (b) What are the total depletion layer width and the maximum field in the junction? Solutions: (a) c E E v E f c E E v E f 0.5 V n-type p-type (b) 90 . 0 ln 2 = = i d a bi n N N q kT ψ V 075 . 0 ) 5 . 0 )( ( 2 = - + = d a bi d a si d N qN N N W ε μ m E max = + = si d a d d a N N N W qN ) /( 1.1 × 10 5 V/cm
