Electronic Properties

Conductivity/Resistivity material

Factors influencing conductivity

Free charge -Mobility of free charge -Scattering --> mean free path - Bonding energy - energy gap

Temperature Effect

Temperature increasing: - more random motions ---> more scattering ---> smaller mean free path - gives energy to break the bonding energy - more lattice vibration

Electric field effect E

Electron (-) moves toward opposite direction of electric field, leaves hole. The charge movement is constrained by other charges, defects, and impurity scattering ---> limited free mean path

Measurement: Current source or voltage source

Mobilitas muatan and drift velocity

Describing the scattering process experiencing by electrons ----> scattering makes a material has resistance E

Drift velocity: average electron velocity

v d =e E B : mobility (m2/Vs)

Band Gap
Atomic view: Only electrons in outer level usually give contributions to conductivity. The one in inner shell are strongly bounded, requires more energy to break the bond. Solid state view: only electrons in conduction bands are free and give contributions to conductivity. It requires energy to excite electron from valence to conduction bands

- conductor ( conductivity >107 S/m, metal bonding, electrons are delocalized/ relatively free to move, it does not locally bond to certain atom ) - semi conductor (conductivity: 10-6 104 S/m, weak covalent bonding, requires a bit low energy to excite electrons) - insulator (conductivity < 10-10 S/m, ionic and strong covalent bonding, requires a high energy to excite electrons )

Electronic Properties of Metal

Factors influencing metal resistivity: - scattering by thermal, impurity, and lattice deformation Matthiessen's rule

Temperature effect:

T =0+ aT
Impurity effect, for impurity concentration C

i = AC ( 1 C )
For alloys consists of two different phases

i = V + V
