Unformatted text preview: Discussion on Selected Homework Problems for ECE 606 Homework 6 (6.4) (a) The semiconductor is concluded to be in equilibrium because the Fermi level is invariant as a function of position. (b) J N = 0 and J P = 0 at both x = L/ 2 and x = L/ 2. The net elec- tron and hole currents ar always zero everywhere under equilibrium conditions. (d) There is an electron diffusion current at both x = L/ 2 and x = L/ 2. With dn dx < 0, J N | diff at x = L/ 2 flows in the x direction. Conversely, dn dx > 0 at x = L/ 2 and J N | diff at this point flows in the + x direction. (e) There is an electron drift current at both x = L/ 2 and x = L/ 2. Since both n and are non-zero, it follows that J N | droft = q n n negationslash = 0. The drift component of the current has the same direction as the electric field. Thus J N | drift is in the + x direction at x = L/ 2 and in the x direction at x = L/ 2. Note that the diffusion and drift currents are in the opposite directions at the cited points, as must be the case since the net carrier currents are zero.
