ECE 103 Midterm (Fall 2010) Assume silicon, room temperature, complete ionization. 1. (10 pts) A p-n junction with N a = 10 17 cm -3 and N d = 10 16 cm -3 is forward biased at 0.5 V. (a) What are the electron and hole concentrations at the edge of the depletion region on the n-type side? (b) What are the current component(s) at the same point as in (a)? Pick answer(s) from the list: (electron drift, electron diffusion, hole drift, hole diffusion). Solutions: (a) 16 10 = = d N n cm -3 12 / 2 10 4 . 5 × = = kT qV d i e N n p cm -3 (b) Electron drift and hole diffusion.
