Recall From elementary physics: P.E. = qV for electrons therefore the electrostatic potential is: V = (1/q) (EC Eref) Instructor: Mohamed Mohamed EE 332 Spring 2013 Potential and E-field? How Does P.E. Relate to E-Field? K.E. = E EC for electrons Electrostatic Potential: Electric Field: E-field is proportional to the slope of the energy band diagram!!
