Quick noob ques: Si-SiO2 interface

  1. Aug 27, 2010 #1

    I'm currently working on a project which is far out of my current level. So basically a few questions around

    1. "Fermi energy relative to the nominal conduction-band edge at the surface" < what should this mean? basically surface = si-sio2 interface but the fermi level will be distorted near the interface right? what does it mean by conduction band edge? and how can i find this data? (i assume it's not a constant, but something depends on distance from interface, z)

    2. any simple, undergrad accessible book/resources on junction modelling? I'm currently working to model Si-Sio2 junction :)

    thanks in advance!! (great... my solid state phy wasn't good =( )
