Feb 5th 2006

      ** Ei is a term used to describe the energy level exactly midway between Ec and Ev. Ei= (Ec+Ev)/2. You      are not responsible to know this however it might be useful. Ei is different from Ef. It helps you judge       if the material is p type or n type by looking at the position of Ef relative to Ei. That is if Ef is above   Ei you know that Ef is close to Ec and hence the material is n type or has more electrons than holes, while if Ef is below Ei than the Fermi level is close to Ev and and the material is ptype.


      Hope this helps ! We will ensure not to use it in your hw assignments from now on, but if you are still     confused about it and would like to know more about it ask Dan or Anu.


      ** hws will be returned during lecture on teusdays.

      ** Our homework policy is that we will accept late homeworks which are turned in before the next    week’s Assignment. These will be graded and given credit, while some credit will be                     subtracted for turning it in late. The idea is to encourage all of you to turn in the homework                  even if it’s late. The Homeworks are meant to help you understand material and form a very                   important part of the course.
