Electrochemical Poten‘al Electrochemical Poten/al: a measure of the amount of energy needed to add or remove an incremental amount of a given charged species from a deFned locus that may be under the influence of an electric Feld, incorpora‘ng both chemical poten/al and electrosta/cs The Fermi Energy is equal to the electrochemical poten‘al in a semiconductor

Other Defni‘ons Chemical Poten/al: The incremental change in the Gibbs Free Energy oF the system per par‘cle (fxed temperature, pressure, etc.). Gibbs Free Energy: In a chemical system, the enthalpy oF the system minus the product oF the temperature and entropy (at constant pressure/volume) μ= G n G = H TS = U + PV TS U = internal energy, S = entropy, H = enthalpy

Conduc‘on Band Density of States Consider a cube of material having sides of length "L" A free electron in this material has a wavefunction given by: ψ = Ae j k x x + k y y + k z z ( ) where k x = n x 2 π L , k y = n y 2 L k z = n z 2 L We also know: E = p 2 2 m * = 2 k 2 2 m * = 2 2 2 m * L 2 n x 2 + n y 2 + n z 2 ( ) The constant energy surface is therefore the the surface of a sphere of radius "n" where: n = n x 2 + n y 2 + n z 2 ( ) 1 2 The total number of states within the sphere is: N = 4 3 n 3 2D 3D 11 Note: Other variants of this derivation get the same result
