Midterm Exam 1 ECE103 (WI-11) 2/3/2011 ALLOWED: Calculators and one 8.5”x11 page of notes (one side). Note you are required to turn in your page of notes with your exam. NOT ALLOWED: Textbooks, class notes, problem sets, etc. ATTEMPT ALL PROBLEMS AND SHOW ALL WORK! This exam has a maximum score of 100 points. You have 80 minutes to complete this exam. q = 1.60x10 -19 C; k = 8.617x10 -5 eV/K; m 0 = 9.11x10 -31 kg; ε 0 = 8.85x10 -14 F/cm; 1 μ m = 1x10 -4 cm = 1x10 -6 m; n i (Si, T=300K) = 1.0x10 10 cm -3 ; E g (Si at T=300K) = 1.12 eV; Lattice constant (a = 5.43 x 10 -8 cm for Si). Density of States Effective masses of Si at 300K m * n = 1.81 m 0 and m * p = 0.81 m 0 1. [40 points] Please describe Si crystals by answering the following questions – (i) How many valence electrons does a Si atom have? (ii) What kind of crystal structure (lattice and unit cell) does Si form? Draw (100) and (111) planes for Si lattice and find out the atomic density of Si atoms in each plane. (iii) What is the energy band gap of Si and Intrinsic carrier concentration at 300K? Given effective mass, m * n = 1.81 m 0 and m * p = 0.81 m 0

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
