Unformatted text preview: If x = 0 is the boundary of the quasi neutral P region adjacent to the depletion region, what is the boundary condition for the excess minority electron equation at x = 0 for an applied bias of VA? (This result is known as the “Law of the Junction.”). qV k T
a) Δn ( x = 0 ) = N Ae A B . (
c) Δn ( x = 0 ) = ( n )
)e ( b) Δn ( x = 0 ) = ni2 N A ln ( qV A k BT ) 2
i d) Δn ( x = 0 ) = ni2 e ( NA q Vbi −V A ) k BT qV A k BT ) e) Δn ( x = 0 ) = ni2 N A e 2) . qV A k BT For very large forward bias, the current “rolls off” (i.e. the current is not as large at a given voltage as the ideal diode equation would predict). The reason for this is: a)...
