24 x lof6 Ne = 2. 24 x 1 zero ' ~ cm-3 rn remark A compensated semiconductor might be fabricated to supply a selected Fermi strength point. i 4. 6 Posltlon of Fermi strength point We may well strengthen a touch diverse expression for the placement of the Fermi point. We had from Equation (4. 39) that no = n; exp[(EF - EFi)/kT]. we will be able to clear up for EF - Efj as Equation (4. sixty five) can be utilized particularly for an n-type semiconductor, the place no is given via Equation (4. 60). to discover the variation hetween the Fermi point and the inuinsicFenni point as a functionality of the donor focus. We may well be aware that, if the web powerful donor focus is 0, that's, N , - N, = zero, then no = n , and EF = E F ; . a very compensated semiconductor has the features of an intrinsic fabric when it comes to service focus and Fenni point place. we will be able to derive the seme kinds of equations for a p-type semiconductor. From Equation(4. 19), we have now po = N , exp [-(EF - E,. )/kT]. in order that If we think that N , >> 11,. then Equatlon (4. sixty six) may be written as the gap among the Fermi point and the pinnacle of the valence-band strength for a p-type semiconductor is a logarithmic functionality orthe acceptor focus: because the acceptor focus raises, the Fermi point strikes in the direction of the valence band. Equation (4. sixty seven) nonetheless assumes that the Boltzmann approximation is legitimate. back. if we now have a compensated p-type semiconductor, then the N, time period in Equation (4. sixty seven) is changed by way of N, - N d , or the internet powerful acceptor focus. we will additionally derive an expression for the connection among the Fermi point and the intrinsic Fermi point when it comes to the opening focus. we now have from Equation (4. forty) that po = n,exp [-(EF - E r , )/kT]. which yields Equation (4. sixty eight) can be utilized to discover the variation among the intrinsic Fermi point and the Fermi strength by way of the acceptor focus. the outlet focus po in Equation (4. sixty eight) is given by way of Equation (4. 62). We might back observe from Equation (4. sixty five) that, for an n-type semiconductor, no > n, and EF > Efj. The Fermi point for an n-type semiconductor is above E F , . For a p-type semiconductor, p" > n i , and from Equation (4. sixty eight) we see that CHAPTER four The Semiconductor in Equilibrium 1 determine four. 17 1 place of Fcrmi lcvcl for an pa) n-type (N,, > N,,) and (b) p-type (N, > N,,) semiconductor. E F ~> E F . The Fermi point for a p-type semiconductor is under E 6 , . those consequence are proven in determine four. 17. four. 6. 2 version of EF with Doping focus and Temperature We could plot the location of the Fermi power point as a functionality of the doping con centration. determine four. 18 exhibits the Fermi strength point as a functionality of donor concen tration (n sort) and as a functionality of acceptor focus (p style) for silicon a T = three hundred ok. because the doping degrees bring up, the Fermi power point strikes toward th conduction band for the n-type fabric and towards the valence band for the p-typ fabric. remember that the equations for the Ferlni strength point that we havede rived imagine that the Boltzmann approximation is legitimate.
