Homework Help: Some question about Maxwell-Boltzmann statistics

  1. Nov 5, 2006 #1
    alright i juz want to say im stucked in examples problem, the question is:

    A semiconductor is said to be degenerately doped when n>-Nc or p>-Nv. assuming Maxwell Boltzmann statistics, determine the values of Nd and Na needed to obtain degenerately doped N- and P- type silicon. Where is the Fermi Level in a degenerately doped N-type and P-Type semiconductor? What happens to the ionisation probability of the dopant atoms?

    well i dont know the complete answer but i just know that in case of denerate N type semiconductor , fermi level moves into the conduction band. While in case of P type semiconductor it moves into valence band.
