Solutions Chapter 4 1 5/12/09 Anderson & Anderson 4.2. Consider the gradedcomposition Si:Ge alloy discussed in Section 4.3. The hole concentration is assumed constant ( N A ' is essentially constant and all dopants are ionized). There is no electric field or diffusion for holes at equilibrium but there is a field for electrons in the conduction band. Since at equilibrium there is no net current, the drift electron current must be offset by an opposing diffusion current. Identify and explain the source of the varying electron concentration that produces the diffusion current. Since the bandgap is changing, n i changes. Thus even though p is constant, n = n i 2 p is not. At the end where the band gap is smaller, n i is larger, and thus n is larger. This produces an electron diffusion flux to the left that offsets the drift flux gong to the right. 4.3. Find the time required for an electron to traverse the pregion of Example 4.2 due to drift alone. The electric field is 20 kV/cm. at this field the electrons travel near their saturation velocity.

A graded alloy is manufactured in the AlGaAs system. At x =0, the material is pure GaAs ( χ =4.07, E g =1.43), and over a distance of 2 μ m the composition changes to Ga 0.6 Al 0.4 As ( χ =3.4 eV and E g =1.92 eV). The material is intrinsic. Find the effective electric fields for electrons and holes, and find the true electric field. We first draw the energy band diagram by drawing the Fermi level as a constant, and then constructing the energy band diagram of the two materials around it assuming the intrinsic level to be at midgap. At the GaAs end, E C 2245 1.43/2=0.715 eV above E f , and E vac is 4.07 eV above E C ....
