The probability for an electron to exist at an energy level is assuming there is a state in the energy level to allow an electron occupied. If there is no state at that enery level, any electron can be there stably, thus, no electron can be found there with meaningful probability. Note that the multiplication constant is deternimed by (...)

fermi level is the term used to describe the top of the collection of electron energy levels at absolute zero temperature.
The fermi level can be defined as the level which has a 50% probability of occupation by an electron at any temperature.

You can think of the fermi level as the center of gravity of the amount of free charge particles. i.e.
If the fermi level is in the middle, then there is a balance between the number of free charge particles in the valency band (holes) and the number of free charge particles in the conduction band (electrons).
When it (...)

fermi level for electrons (in n-type semiconductor) and for holes (in p-type semiconductor) are different. When n-type and p-type semiconductors are making a contact (to form a p-n junction), fermi levels should become equal - that's the requirement for zero current flow (in steady-state or (...)
