EE105, Fall 2013 Lecture 15 – Slide 8 Prof. Ming C. Wu 4 MOS Capacitor §༊  A metal-oxide-semiconductor structure can be considered as a parallel-plate capacitor, with the top plate being the positive plate, the gate insulator being the dielectric, and the p-type semiconductor substrate being the negative plate. §༊  The negative charges in the semiconductor (for VG > 0) are comprised of conduction electrons and/or acceptor ions. §༊  In order to understand how the potential and charge distributions within the Si depend on VG, we need to be familiar with electrostatics... EE105, Fall 2013 Lecture 15 – Slide 9 Prof. Ming C. Wu Gauss’s Law ∇⋅E = ρ ε ρ is the net charge density ε is the dielectric permittivity à༎ If the magnitude of electric field changes, there must be charge! §༊  In a charge- free region, the electric field must be constant. §༊  Gauss’ Law equivalently says that if there is a net electric field leaving a region, there must be posiNve charge in that region: ∫ E ⋅ dS = EE105, Fall 2013 Q ε Lecture 15 – Slide 10 The integral of the electric field over a closed surface is proportional to the charge within the enclosed volume Prof. Ming C.
