Band Structure and Electrical Conductivity in Semiconductors (2.10)

Student's Manual This experiment is designed to calculate the energy band gap in the intrinsic region and the temperature dependence of the majority carrier mobility in the extrinsic region of semiconductors.
Sample Results Resistance versus temperature plot of carbon resistor
Resistivity versus temperature plot of Ge
Resistance versus temperature plot of UJT
