ECE 6450 Homework #1 Some (perhaps not all) physical properties that might be needed in this homework: Density of Si = 2.328 g/cm 3 Molecular weight of Si = 28.086 grams/mole Density of Ge = 5.3267 Molecular weight of Ge = 72.61 grams/mole Density of SiO 2 = 2.2 g/cm 3 Molecular weight of Si0 2 = 60.085 grams/mole Atomic density of Si = 5e22 /cm 3 Atomic density of Ge = 4.42e22 /cm 3 Problem #1: To increase the speed of their transistors, IBM and Intel are considering using Si 85% Ge 15% (% atomic) instead of Si (not necessarily in the bulk form we discuss here). You are asked to grow a crystal of this material. A.) Assuming an equilibrium condition at the solid-liquid interface, approximately what temperature (at the interface) should you use and why (discuss the state of all phases at your chosen temperature)? B.) What range of compositions of the source charge (assume a finely mixed powder that has been thoroughly melted) results in the desired composition of the solid crystal? C.) If the total

    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.
