Unformatted text preview: ECE 340 Homework V Fall 2003 Due: Wednesday, September 24, 2003 Solution: 30 points total 1. An ptype Si sample with N a = 2x10 16 /cm 3 is steadily illuminated such that g op = 10 21 EHP/cm 3s. If τ n = τ p =1 μs for the excitation, calculate the separation in the quasiFermi levels, (F nF p ). Draw a band diagram such as Fig. 411. Solution: (a) 15 3 1 10 op n p g c m δ δ τ − = = = × , therefore indeed low level injection 15 3 1 10 n n n cm δ − = + = × 16 3 2.1 10 p p p c m δ − = + = × 0.0259ln 0.288 n i i n F E eV n − = = 0.0259ln 0.366 i p i p E F e V n − = = 0.654 n p F F eV − = 2. (a) A Ge bar 0.1 cm long and 100 μm 2 in crosssectional area is doped with 1x10 17 /cm 3 gallium. Find the current at 300 K with 10 V applied. Repeat for a Ge bar 1 μm long assuming that the saturation thermal velocity of electrons in Ge is about 10 7 cm/s. (b) Upon a steady illumination uniform excess carriers are generated in the Ge bar. Assume that τ n = τ p = 1 μs for the excitation. Estimate the optical generation rate of EHPs per second required to increase the 1 μs for the excitation....
