Lecture 14-2

Key questions

What are the dominant physics of current ow in a p-n junction under bias? What underlies the rectifying behavior of the p-n junction? What are the key assumptions that allow the development of a simple model for the I-V characteristics of a p-n diode? What are the key dependencies of the current-voltage character istics of the p-n diode?

Lecture 14-4

In TE: balance between electron and hole ows across SCR balance between G and R in QNRs I=0 In forward bias: energy barrier to minority carriers reduced minority carrier injection R > G in QNRs I eqV/kT In reverse bias: energy barrier to minority carriers increased minority carrier extraction G > R in QNRs I saturates to a small value

Lecture 14-5

Key thinking to construct model for I-V characteristics: junction voltage sets concentration of carriers with enough en ergy to get injected; rate of carrier injection set by minority carrier transport and G/R rates in quasi-neutral regions; SCR is in quasi-equilibrium.

Strategy for deriving rst-order model for I-V characteristics: Compute diode current density as follows:

J = Je(xp ) + Jh(xn )

Compute each minority carrier current contribution as follows: Je (xp ) = qn(xp)ve (xp) Jh(xn ) = qp(xn )vh(xn ) Use expressions of ve(xp ) and vh(xn) derived for similar minor

ity carrier type problems in Ch. 5.

Derive expressions for n(xp ) and p (xn) assuming quasi-equilibrium across the space-charge region. Unied result for forward and reverse bias.

If net current inside SCR is much smaller than drift and diusion components, then quasi-equilibrium Boltzmann relations apply:

In terms of excesses:

Boundary conditions have all expected features. For electrons (for example): For V = 0:

Lecture 14-9

Minority carrier velocity at edges of SCR (long diode: Wn Lh, Wp Le). Problem identical to long bar studied in Ch. 5: exponentially decaying excess minority carrier proles.
