Homework Help: Effect of doping on Breakdown voltage

  1. Sep 14, 2017 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    The breakdown voltage is the voltage at which the minority charge carriers becomes energetic enough to lock out valence electrons from the intrinsic diode.
    In case of doping, the no. of charge carriers is increased, but the energy needed to lock out the valence electrons remains same. So, the breakdown voltage remains same. Right?
