Once you master the material and concepts presented here, their extension to new materials, and even to heterostructures, will be easy. 5 THE EFFECTS OF CHANGING TEMPERATURE The semiconductors used in most modern electronic devices and integrated circuits (primarily silicon, but also germanium, gallium arsenide, and others) have been chosen and engineered for use at room temperature. This means, as we have discussed with respect to extrinsic silicon, that they have energy gaps that are large enough for the intrinsic carrier concentration at room temperavlre to be sufficiently small that, without dopants, the semiconductor is effectively an insulator.

43) and This solution is illustrated in Fig. 3d. In all of these cases, we would of course have to verify that low-level injection was not violated before we could say that we were truly done solving the problem. (c) Square wave illurnination. Next consider that the illumination is turned on and off regularly for equal amounts of time, T / 2 , and that this process has been continuing for a very long time, so that a steady state has been reached.
