Unformatted text preview: his problem. Since this is a steady state problem, there is no initial condition. At x = L , we expect all of the minority carriers to have recombined, so: Δn ( x = L ) = 0 At the surface, the total number of e h pairs generation per cm2 per second is GS = GL Δx = 102410−6 = 1018 cm 2s1 . In steady state, these must diffuse away at the same rate that they are generated, so − Dn d Δn

Is zero at x = L because of the boundary condition there. Variation is linear with position because there is no recombination. Electron QFL(x) follows from n ( x ) ≈ Δn ( x ) = ni e − ( Fn ( x )− Ei ) / k BT . 10) The sample is in the dark, but the excess carrier concentration at x = 0 is held constant at Δn ( 0 ) = 1012 cm 3. Find the steady state excess minority carrier concentration and QFL’s vs. position. You may assume that the sample extends to x = +∞ . Make reasonable approximations, and approach the problem as follows. 10a) Simplify the Minority Carrier Diffusion Equation for this problem...
