Question 1 For a silicon Schottky diode with B = 1 V and N d = 10 18 cm -3 , calculate: a) The built-in potential, depletion layer width and the maximum electric field in thermal equilibrium. b) The barrier lowering in thermal equilibrium. c) The change in the built-in potential,  as obtained from a Capacitance-Voltage measurement, if there is a 3 nm interfacial SiO 2 layer between the metal and the semiconductor. d) The ideality factor, n , of the diode as obtained from a Current-Voltage measurement, if there is a 3 nm interfacial SiO 2 layer between the metal and the semiconductor. The built-in potential is obtained from: q E E n F c B i , = 1 – 0.0616 = 0.938 V The depletion layer width for V a = 0 V equals: d a i s d qN V x ) ( 2 = 3.52 x 10 -6 cm The electric field at the interface equals: s d d x qN x ) 0 ( E = - 53.4 kV/cm The barrier lowering in thermal equilibrium equals: s B q  4 max E = 80.3 mV The built-in potential with the interfacial layer equals:
