Unformatted text preview: (a) a bcc lattice? (b) an fcc lattice? 3. Pierret, Problem 1.5, parts (a)–(d) (20 points) 4. Pierret, Problem 1.7, parts (a), (d), (f), and (g) (20 points) 5. Fermi Function (20 Points) a. Under equilibrium conditions and T > 0 K, what is the probability of an electron state being occupied if it is located at the Fermi level? b. If E F is positioned at E C , determine the probability of finding electrons in states at E C + kT. c. The probability of a state is filled at E C + kT is equal to the probability a state is empty at E C + kT. Where is the Fermi level located? d. What is the probability of a state being “occupied” by a hole at an energy E = E F – kT?...
