ECE 3209 — Electromagnetic Fields University of Virginia Fall 2009 Homework # 5 — Dielectrics, Capacitance, and Energy Due: Friday, October 9 1. A thick spherical shell (inner radius a , outer radius b ) is filled with dielectric material with a “frozen in” polarization, ~ P = kr ˆ r , where k is a constant and r is the distance from the center (there is no free charge in this problem). Find the electric field in all three regions ( r < a, a < r < b , and r > b ) by two different methods: (a) Locate all the bound charge and calculate the field it produces. (b) Use Gauss’s Law to find ~ D and then obtain ~ E . 2. The MOS (Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor) capacitor is an important electronic component in modern integrated circuits. The charge configuration is similar to that for a Schottky diode except that there is a thin layer of non-conducting oxide (dielectric) between the metal and semiconductor, as shown below. Assume that the metal carries a uniform negative surface charge density of
