Ele533 Old Exam Problem np junction 1
Consider a silicon pn junction. The p side is uniformly
doped with 1018 acceptors/cm3. The n side is doped
with 1016 donors/cm3.
- What is the built in potential?
- What is the position of the fermi level relative to the
intrinsic level on the p side of the junction?
- The junction area is 10 microns by 10 microns. What is the saturation
current, Is, in the equation,
I = Is*eV/Vt
Use the mobility vs doping curves.
