ECE 132 Quiz 5 Name _________________________ November 10, 2010 1) Consider a pn junction where both the p and n regions are heavily doped by the same amount (N A ++ = N D -- = 10 20 cm -3 ). In this case, the Fermi level is essentially at the band edge, E F E v on p side; E F ≈ E c on n side. What will the approximate value of W be in this case? a) Infinity (Width of the semiconductor) b) ~5 cm c) Zero What will the built in voltage, V bi be? a) 0.7 V b) 0 V c) E c E v = E g 2) Now consider a p-i-n structure which has an intrinsic, undoped region in between the p and n regions. If both the p and n regions are heavily doped by the same amount (N A ++ = N D -- = 10 20 cm -3
