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?
