ELEG 646 ; ELEG 446 - Nanoelectronic Device Principles Spring 2010 Homework #4 - due Tuesday, 23 March 2009, in class 1. A Silicon sample with 10 15 cm -3 donors is uniformly optically excited at room temperature such that 10 19 cm -3 electron hole pairs are generated per second. Find the separation of the quasi- Fermi levels and the change in conductivity (i.e. the photoconductivity) upon shining the light. Electron and hole lifetimes are both 10 μsec, and D p = 12 cm 2 -s -1 . 2. Problem 5.1 in chapter 5, Muller & Kamins, p. 274 in 3rd edition.
