Energy level in pn junction


This is your research project! The article explains the pn junction quite well, and provides a _hint_ for your question in case you have forgotten.

Hint: if the hint given was insufficient for recall, then you can assume that the author has explained it earlier in his lectures ... probably when explaining Fermi levels.
