330P ‘ 42/0 P NAME: gOLUTION Please show all work and write your answers clearly. This exam should have five pages. Problem 1 a [p. 2] 6 points
Problem 2 [p. 3] 7 points
Problem 3 [p. 4, 5] 12 points Total ' 25 points ‘ Problem 1 (6 points) E Density of states,
D(E) >
1000 K “I 300 K A channel has a density of states as shown, given by D(E) = D0 + D1 (E — (1)2 where D0 = 0.1 / eV, and D1 = 2 / eV3. It is connected to two contacts with the same electrochemical potential pt. Is there a current in the external circuit ? If so, is it in the direction shown (from the hot to the cold contact) or opposite to the direction showu (from the cold to the hot
contact) ? Explain your reasoning. Problem 2 (7 points) 2

number of electrons, N using the multielectron picture where we have two levels ‘0’ and
‘1’ corresponding to the one—electron level being empty or full respectively. Oneelectron picture Multielectron picture l—Hlv—H 0 Your answers to all questions below should be in terms of the Fermi functions in the two
contacts and the couplings yl and 3/2 for the two contacts. (a) Equate the rate of transition from ‘0’ to ‘l’and that from ‘1’ to ‘0’ to obtain an
expression relating the probabilities PO and PI. ' (b) From your result in (a), find an expression for the average number of electrons, N (0) Obtain an expression for the current I from the rates of transition from ‘1’ to ‘0’ and
from ‘0’ to ‘1’. Route 0bit 790(VIDCI1‘ 313%)
