Note that, the unit of Isd and Ids are in Ampere. In general we can assume, v+ = v- = v . We know that the number of electrons, n = density of states*Fermi function. Since, we have only one energy level, we will have density of states as 1. Accordingly, ( ε − µ1 ) n+ = f1 (ε ) = 1 1+ e n− = f 2 (ε ) = ( ε − µ1 ) KT 1 1+ e (ε − µ2 ) KT ≃e − ≃e KT for (ε - µ1) >> KT − ( ε − µ2 ) KT for (ε - µ2) >> KT Since, according to the figure provided, we have put some positive voltage at node D with respect to source node S, µ1 > µ2 ⇒ n+ > n− Accordingly, there will be a net electron current flowing from source to drain, i.e., Page 11 of 13 Exam 1 ECE 559 (Fall 2009), Purdue University I = I sd − I ds = qAv(n+ − n− ) −µ −µ − (εKT 1 ) − (ε KT 2 ) ⇒ I = qAv e −e (µ −µ ) −1 2 ⇒ I = qAve 1 − e KT ( ε − µ1 ) (µ −µ ) − −1 2 ⇒ I = qAve KT 1 − e KT ( ε − µ ) ( ε 0 −ε ) (µ −µ ) −0 1 −1 2 ⇒ I = qAve KT e KT 1 − e KT − ( ε − µ1 ) KT Now, we can write µ1 − µ2 = qVDS ε0 − ε = qVGS m where, m is the body-bias coefficient. It arises from the fact that when a voltage VGS (gate-tosource voltage) is applied, there is some voltage drop that happens across the gate oxide as well. Thus only a part of the voltage applied is responsible to shifting the gate energy level downward. Thus, m > 1 in general. So, I = qAve ( ε 0 − µ1 ) KT − ⇒ I = I 0e VGS mKT qV − DS e 1 − e KT qV − DS 1 − e KT VGS mKT where, I 0 = qAve − ( ε 0 − µ1 ) KT .

Ideally gate only should have control over determining the barrier height. But, drain gets also some control as it is electrostatically coupled to the gate.

But as the Fermi level at drain is at lower potential than that of the source, the increase in the number of electrons traversing from source-to-drain is more than that of for drain-to-source.
