Mark Lundstrom 10/5/13 ECE-656 Fall 2013 1 SOLUTIONS: ECE 656 Homework (Week 7) Mark Lundstrom Purdue University (Revised 10/30/13) 1) In Lecture 15, we derived a current equation for a 2D, n-type conductor and wrote it as J n = σ S d F n q ( ) dx . Derive the corresponding equation for a p-type semiconductor. Solution: I = 2 q h T E ( ) M V E ( ) f 1 f 2 ( ) dE −∞ E V (channels in the valence band are all below E = E V .) f 1 f 2 f 1 E qV T E ( ) = λ + L L I = 2 q h E ( ) M V E ( ) f 0 E −∞ E V dE qV L J px = I W qV = −Δ F p J px = 2 q h E ( ) M V E ( ) W ( ) f 0 E −∞ E V dE Δ F p L J px = 2 q h E ( ) M V E ( ) W ( ) f 0 E −∞ E V dE dF p dx = Sp dF p dx J px = Sp d F p q ( ) dx Sp = 2 q 2 h E ( ) M V E ( ) W ( ) f 0 E −∞ E V dE

Mark Lundstrom 10/5/13 ECE-656 Fall 2013 2 2) In Lecture 15, we derived the drift-diffusion equation for a 2D n-type semiconductor with parabolic energy bands. Repeat the derivation for a 3D semiconductor with parabolic energy bands. Do not assume Maxwell-Boltzmann statistics. Solution: Begin with: J nx = σ dF n q dx (i) n = N C F 1/2 η F ( ) F = F n E C ( ) k B T N C = 1 4 2 m * k B T π 2 3/2 Now find the gradient of the electrochemical potential: dn dx = N C d d F 1/2 F ( ) d F dx = N C 1/2 F ( ) dF n dx dE C dx
