Intrinsic charge carrier density of semiconductors

n=sqrt(NL*NV)e(-E/2)
ni: Intrinsic charge carrier density
NL: Electron number in conduction band
NV: Electron number in valence band
Eg: Energy gap
T: Temperature
k: Boltzmann constant


Information:
Category:Solid state physics
Description:The formula describes the density of charge carriers in a semiconductor available for the conductance at a certain temperature.
