ECE 340 HW Assignment 2 Solutions Summer 2011 1 ECE 340 Homework Assignment 2 - Solutions Due: Friday June 24 th , 2011 1. Nanohub Problem: In this problem we will be using a web-based simulation tool on the NanoHUB website (an NSF sponsored education and research resource). Go to http://nanohub.org . If you aren’t already a member, please register. For this problem we will use the Carrier Statistics Lab applet found at http://nanohub.org/resources/fermi Once the applet is launched, set the following parameters: Under the Materials and Statistics tab o Fermi-Dirac (FD) Statistics o Material: Silicon o Doping/Fermi level: Semiconductor Doping Under the temperature tab turn OFF the temperature sweep (a) [1 point] Set the acceptor concentration to 10/cm3. Simulate with two different donor concentrations: 1e+14, 1e+18/cm3. Provide the occupation function (distribution function) plot for each case. What happens to the occupation function as we increase the donor concentration? The graph on the left is for 1e14 /cm3 donors and the one on the right is for 1e18 /cm3. As we increase donor concentration, we see that the distribution moves higher up in energy.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
