Electrons and holes drift in opposite directions because they have
The two electrical currents formed by (i) electrons flowing in one
direction and (ii) holes flowing in the opposite direction, are
directed in the same direction.
In an intrinsic semiconductor, it is n0 = p0. Under illumination, it is
n = p. Thus n = n0 + n = p = p0 + p. (b) Incorrect. (c) Incorrect.
(f) Correct. (g) Correct. 3. (a) The sample is p-type, because the distance in energy between the hole quasi-Fermi level
and the valence band is smaller than the distance in energy between the electron quasi160 meV
Fermi level and the conduction band, F
F (where F
(b) From derivations in parts (d) and (g) we can calculate the change in elec...
