ELEG 867 - Devices for Light Detection from the Submillimeter to the Ultraviolet – Fall 2009 Homework #4 - due Friday, 2 October 2009, in class ( note – Quiz 2 will be Wednesday, 9/30, not Monday 9/28 ) Extrinsic Photodetectors and Photodiodes 1. Problem 3.3, from Rieke, p. 77. Just compare dark currents at T = 4K and 77K only. Hints: (1) assume that the dopant ionization energy is 15 meV for the extrinsic devices, and (2) assume that m* = 1 m e in N C , N V for calculating the intrinsic concentration n i in terms of bandgap, as for example in Eqn. (4.34).
