Question
The intrinsic semiconductor becomes an insulator at
Choices
Choice (4)  Response  

a.  100°C 

b.  0 K 

c.  0°C 

d.  300 K 

Passage
Doping changes the Fermi energy of a semiconductor. Consider silicon, with a gap of 1.11 eV between the top of the valence bond and the bottom of the conduction band. At 300K the Fermi level of the pure material is nearly at the midpoint of the gap. Suppose that silicon is doped with donor atoms, each of which has a state 0.15 eV below the bottom of the silicon conduction band, and suppose further that doping raises the Fermi level to 0.11 eV below the bottom of that band.
