2 Bond Model of Electrons and Holes Si Si Si Si Si Si Si Si Si Silicon crystal in a twodimensional representation. Si Si Si Si Si Si Si Si Si Si Si Si Si Si Si Si Si Si When an electron breaks loose and becomes a conduction electron, a hole is also created.
3 Semiconductors, Insulators, and Conductors E c E g1.1 ev E c Ev E g 9 ev E v Top of conduction band empty filled E c Si, Semiconductor SiO 2, insulator Conductor Totally filled bands and totally empty bands do not allow current flow. (Just as there is no motion of liquid in a totally filled or totally empty bottle.) Metal conduction band is halffilled. Semiconductors have lower E G s than insulators and can be doped
4 electron  Bottom of conduction band Intrinsic Carriers Energy gap 1.12 ev hole + Top of valence band n (electron conc) p (hole conc) n i
5 Dopants in Silicon Si Si Si Si Si Si Si As Si Si B Si Si Si Si Si Si Si As, a Group V element, introduces conduction electrons and creates Ntype silicon, and is called a donor. B, a Group III element, introduces holes and creates Ptype silicon, and is called an acceptor.
6 Types of charges in semiconductors Hole Electron Mobile Charge Carriers they contribute to current flow with electric field is applied. Ionized Donor Ionized Acceptor Immobile Charges they DO NOT contribute to current flow with electric field is applied. However, they affect the local electric field
7 Fermi Function The Probability of an Energy State Being Occupied by an Electron f ( E) ( E E ) / kt E 1+ e 1 f E f is called the Fermi energy or the Fermi level. Boltzmann approximation: f ( E E ) kt f ( E) e E E f >> kt E f E f E f + 3kT + 2kT E f + kt ( E E f ) kt f ( E) e f ( E ) kt E ( E) 1 e f E E f << kt E f E f kt E f 2kT E f 3kT ( E f E ) kt f ( E) 1 e f(e)
8 Electron and Hole Concentrations n N c e ( E E F C ) / kt N c is called the effective density of states. p N v e ( E E V F ) / kt N v is called the effective density of states of the valence band. Remember: the closer E f moves up to E c, the larger n is; the closer E f moves down to E v, the larger p is. For Si, N c cm 3 and N v cm 3.
9 Shifting the Fermi Level
10 Quantitative Relationships n: electron concentration (cm 3 ) p : hole concentration (cm 3 ) N D : donor concentration (cm 3 ) N A : acceptor concentration (cm 3 ) Assume completely ionized to form N D + and N A  1) Charge neutrality condition: N D + p N A + n 2) Law of Mass Action : n p n i 2 What happens when one doping species dominates?
11 General Effects of Doping on n and p I. N N >> n (i.e., Ntype) d a i n N d N a p n 2 i n If N d >> N a, n Nd and p 2 n i N d II. N N >> a d n i (i.e., Ptype) p n N a N n 2 i p d If N >>, a N d p Na and n 2 n i N a
12 When an electric field is applied to a semiconductor, mobile carriers will be accelerated by the electrostatic force. This force superimposes on the random thermal motion of carriers: E.g. Electrons drift in the direction opposite to the Efield Current flows E 0 Average drift velocity v μ E 5 1 electron Carrier Drift Carrier mobility 2 E 1 electron
13 Carrier Mobility Mobile carriers are always in random thermal motion. If no electric field is applied, the average current in any direction is zero. Mobility is reduced by 1) collisions with the vibrating atoms phonon scattering 2) deflection by ionized impurity atoms Coulombic scattering  B  As+   Si

17 W I + L V Material with resistivity ρ _ R s Sheet Resistance L t R ρ Wt R s is the resistance when W L ρ t R s value for a given conductive layer (e.g. doped Si, metals) in IC or MEMS technology is used for design and layout of resistors for estimating values of parasitic resistance in a device or circuit R s L W (in ohms/square) if ρ is independent of depth x
18 Diffusion Current Particles diffuse from higher concentration to lower concentration locations.
19 J n, diffusion qd Diffusion Current n dn dx J p, diffusion qd p dp dx D is called the diffusion constant. Signs explained: n p x x
20 Generation/Recombination Processes Recombination continues until excess carriers 0. Time constant of decay is called recombination lifetime
21 Continuity Equations Combining all the carrier actions: n n n n t t + drift t + + diff t thermalr G Now, by the definition of current, we know: n t others n n J J Nx Ny J Nz t + 1 drift t 1 diff q ( x + y + z ) q J Since a change in carrier concentration must occur from a net current Therefore, we can compactly write the continuity equation as: N n t p t 1 q J 1 q N J + P n t thermalr G + + p t thermalr G n t other p t other +
