P. R. Nelson 3 (a) Because x n > x 0 only the dopings at the edges of the deple- tion region are needed to determine the built-in voltage. It is determined by N A and N D . (b) x ρ - x p - qN A qN D / 5 N D x 0 x n (c) Solve Poisson’s equation in one dimension, d E dx = ρ K S ϵ 0 ρ = - qN A - x p x < 0 qN D / 5 0 x < x 0 qN D x 0 x < x n 0 elsewhere Let E = 0 for x < - x p and x > x n . Then p quasi-neutral region: ρ = 0 so E = 0 . p-side depletion region: E = - qN A K S ϵ 0 ( x + x p ) n quasi-neutral region: ρ = 0 so E = 0 . n-side depletion region: This region is more complicated be- cause there are two sections with different dopings.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
