Given silicon pn-junction at T= 300K, doped at Nd = 1016 and Na = 1017 and cj = 0.8pF, VR =5v

Solution

Carrier concentration of silicon at T= 300K is nt = 1.5*1010 CM-3

Potential barrier of pn junction is

Vbi = (kT/e) ln (NaNd/n2i) = VTln(NaNd/n2i)

= (0.026) ln (1016*1017/(1.5*1010)2)

= 0.757V

Junction capacitance

CJ = Cjo = (1+VR/Vbi)-1/2

where Cjo is junction

0.8*10-12 = (Cjo) ( 1 +5/0.757)-1/2

0.8*10-12 = (Cjo) (0.3626)

Cjo = 2.21pF

Therefore the zero biased junction capacitance at VR = 5V is 2.21pF
