The BandgapFound 5 free book(s)
The bandgap for direct absorption in silicon is 4.10 eV, corresponding to a threshold of 0.3 m. Germanium is another semiconductor material for which the lowest energy absorption takes place by indirect optical transitions. Indirect absorption will occur up to a threshold of 1.85 m.
Low-Voltage Bandgap References The basic bandgap expression, VV BE +17.,2 T takes on a value of about 1.25 V at T = 300K, defying direct implementation in today’s low-voltage technologies. We describe one low-voltage example and refer the reader to  and  for others. For a low-voltage bandgap reference to have a zero TC, it must produce an
Bandgap Engineering Contact resistance depends on barrier height. It is possible to use a lower bandgap material in the source/drain such as Si1-xGex. Band gap of Si1-xGex reduces as compared to Si as Ge fraction increases. • Si1-xGex S/D & germanosilicide contact − Assuming metal Fermi level is pinned near midgap
Its circuit includes a trimmed bandgap reference to assure output voltage accuracy to be within ±1%. On-chip thermal shutdown provides protection against a combination of high current and ambient temperature that would create excessive junction temperature.
