Pierret, Problem 6.10 (20 points) 2. PN-Junction: Reverse Bias (15 points) The junction capacitance C j of a one-sided silicon pn junction (i.e. one side of the junction is highly doped, the other side is much lower doped, e.g. n + p or p + n) at T = 300 K is measured under a reverse bias V A = – 50 mV and found to be 1.3 pF. The junction area is 10 -5 cm 2 and V bi = 0.95 V. (a) Find the doping concentration of the low-doped side of the junction. (b) Find the doping concentration of the higher doped region. 3.

    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.
