This model is valid under the assumption that the width of the p-region is sufficiently small so that injected minority carriers diffuse to the metal contact before recombining with majority carriers. ( Depletion Width
- Si and Ge intrinsic carrier values are based on Thurmond's paper: The Standard Thermodynamics Functions for the Formation of Electrons and Holes in Ge, Si, GaAs, and GaP
- GaAs intrinsic carrier values are based on Blakemore's paper: Semiconducting and other major properties of gallium arsenide
