Consider two energy levels: E1 ,E ev above the fermi leve and E2, E ev below the fermi level. P1 and P2 are respectively the probabilities of E1 being occupied by an electron and E2 being empty. Then a) P1>P2 b) P1=P2 c) P1
The difference between an intrinsic semi. and extrinsic semi. is the amount of impurities or dopants. Pure semi's like type IV; Silicon (Si) or Germanium (Ge) and type III-V ; like GaAs or GaN use different dopants for each type. The dopants uses as donors raise the fermi level and make it less temperature dependant. A common dopant for n-type s
1)What's difference between accumulation and depletion? 2)Why during weak inversion, the electron current from source to drain is mainly due to diffusion not drift current (Electric field)? 3)Is fermi level defined as 50% point of find a electron? beblow that in valence band is 1 and above that in conduction band its 0.
the number of electrons (occupied conduction band levels) is given by the total number of states N(E) multiplied by occupancy F(E),integrated over the conduction band what is mean by number of states and what is mean by occupancy(i think they are taking about fermi level.but i am very clear what is fermi (...)
What is fermi level.How does it change from p-typeto n-type and what are temperature effects on it?
Can anyone tell me what is the difference between fermi level and donor or acceptor level? Also I want to know whether donor or acceptor level are dependent on carrier concentration or not?
My hand waving description goes like this.. In molecular quantum physics, fermi levels are the same as chemical potential used in Semiconductor physics. This graph shows a simple 2 dimensional way energy level of electrons that move from a valence band across a band
I think u got ur 1st answer.. Now about semiconductor In semiconductor There is difference between fermi level Conduction band and valance band electron is in between Conductor and insulator.. And if add impurity in semiconductor fermi level of valance or conduction band will be change according to the doping material used.
The term "fermi level" is the term used to describe the top of the collection of electron energy levels at absolute zero temperature. At absolute zero the Electrons pack into the lowest available energy states and build up a "fermi sea" of electron energy states. fermi level is the surface (...)
Hi, I have few queries regarding the below Qs. 1. How does the fermi level vary with distance under both equilibrium and non-equilibrium conditions? Is it constant or varying under equilibrium and non-equilibrium conditions? My query>> fermi level vary with temp. But I am not getting how to analyse how (...)
Sketch the energy band diagram (E versus x) including fermi level of an intrinsic semiconductor under uniform electric field in x-direction.
Sketch the energy band diagram (E versus x) including fermi level of an intrinsic semiconductor under uniform electric field in x-direction.
Hi, In the band diagram for the depletion region it is seen that the intrinsic level coincides with the fermi level in the middle of the depletion region. Does this mean that the depletion region is intrinsic at the middle? Also the fermi level is closer to the valence band edge in (...)
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.
In a band when fermi level crosses the intrinsic level due to application of voltage (bending) inversion takes place. A p type channel device has the fermi level below the intrinsic level. Due to application of gate voltage the band bends upward and eventually crosses the intrinsic (...)
The gate material makes a big difference. Check out Muller & Kamins. There are issues like surface states, pinned fermi level, etc...
fermi level is an imaginary level which has 100% occupancy at 0K.... also it is the level which has a 50% probability of occupancy at all other temperatures....
Do you mean there is no depeletion area in p+ area(they are at the p+ and nwell interface and most in lower doped nwell),so no generated e/h pair in p+(also is si/sio2 surface with lots defects)will seperated by the electric field and gathered as dark current?? But I remebered that was all about fermi level and g/r center(trap) filling and depe
HI.. I am confused which equations should i use to solve this question. Pls someone tell me the equations/ steps for it/final answer/assumptions made to calculate the question. A Si sample is doped with 10^16cm-3 boron atoms, and a certain number of shallow donors. The fermi level is 0.36eV above Ei at 300K. What is the donor (Nd) concentration
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 (...)
can any body tell me how can i calculate the concentration of donar or acceptor atoms if the difference between fermi level of intrinsic semi conductor and doped semiconductor is given..
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 (...)
Hi, I know that in a pn junction, at equalibrium, the fermilevels in the p and n sides reach the same level, because the elcetron will flow from both sides to the other side, untill the fremi - levels become equal. Now, I want to know, as to why, at equilibrium, the fermi levels in the (...)

hi A reciprocity theorem is presented that relates the short-circuit current of a device, induced by a carrier generation source, to the minority-carrier fermi level in the dark.^The basic relation is general under low injection.^It holds for three-dimensional devices with position dependent parameters (energy gap, electron affinity, mobility,
