(20 points) Pierret 3.22. (20 points) Pierret 3.24. (30 points) Electrostatic analysis of a linearly graded junction: For a linearly graded junction, the doping proﬁle can be represented as ND-NA = a x, where a (in
units of cm'4) is called the grading constant. The extent of the junction is -Wr’2 < x < WXZ. For this junction, ﬁnd a. Electric ﬁeld E (x), electric potential V(x), and built—in potential Vbi. Also plot E (x) and V(x). b. The width of the junction (W) in terms of Vbi and the applied
voltage VA. 0. Junction capacitance C}. (15 points) A Si p+-n step junction is doped with ND: 10IS cm'3 on the 11 side.
