GATE ECE 1992 | Question-11

A semiconductor is irradiated with light such that carriers are uniformly generated throughout its volume. The semiconductor is $n$-type with $N_{D}=10^{19}$ per $\mathrm{cm}^{3}$. If the excess electron concentration in the steady state is $\Delta n=10^{15}$ per $\mathrm{cm}^{3}$ and if $\tau_{p}=10 \mu \sec$ [minority carrier life time] the generation rate due to irradiation

  1. is $10^{20} e-h$ pairs $/ \mathrm{cm}^{3} / \mathrm{s}$
  2. is $10^{24} e \cdot h$ pairs $/ \mathrm{cm}^{3} / \mathrm{s}$
  3. is $10^{10} \mathrm{c} \cdot h$ pairs $/ \mathrm{cm}^{3} / \mathrm{s}$
  4. cannot be determined as the given data is insufficient.
