By completing the Carrier-Statistics Lab in ABACUS - Assembly of Basic Applications for Coordinated Understanding of Semiconductors, you will be able to:

a) understand Fermi-Dirac and Maxwell-Boltzman statistics,

b) describe effects of doping (shifting of fermi level) and density of states on carrier distribution (electrons and holes).

c) study dependence of carrier concentration on temperature.


The specific objectives of the Carrier Statistics Lab are:
