QUESTION: 5

Consider the following statements regarding the magnitude of barrier potential of a p- n junction. Which of them are true?

Solution:

When a p-type semiconductor having holes as majority carrier is clamped with a ntype semiconductor having electron as majority carrier. Some electrons from n-side goes to p-side and some holes goes to n-side, thus creates a potential barrier, which
(i) depends on temperature
(ii) depends on fermi level
(iii) forbidden energy gap Eg
(iv) majority carriers
The correct answers are: It depends on difference between fermi levels on two sides of fermi level, It depends on forbidden energy-gap on two types of semiconductors, It depends on impurity concentration in p and n-type semiconductors

*Multiple options can be correct
