**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.**
