Student #: l. Germanium (Ge) is a Group IV material and so has a valence of 4 like Silicon (Si), but it has a much higher intrinsic carrier density of ni: Z.4xl0l3 cm-3. a) Do you think the energy bandgap of Germanium is larger or smaller than that of Silicon? Explain your answer Sr,l^ cR- W, al,.fr' ,ts-D c.ynrU c,;*-"€-,^Lrr-&/*- "f- *e- is U"-- . ..rur* yvt\6{-, ULr"P"cx.r-S tr-ex-:u &,v--o{^$lr- W4- to A# P*"- ry rt*.€*'*r*b**t $- fue;r$g*ntffi br*,]rf .

Briefly discuss the reiuonableness of the value you obtain.
