Physics - Old Questions

1. What do you mean by the equilibrium current across the pn junction? Use Fermi-Dirac statistcs and Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution to show the flow of electrons from n to p is equal to the flow from p to n. How electron current from p to n (that is, associated with minority carriers) is not affected by the height of the potential energy barrier?Explain.[10]
