    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    Consider a gold Schottkey diode at T=300k formed on a n-type GaAs doped at Nd=5x10^16 cm^-3. Among other things find Phi|n.

    Phi|n=KT/e*ln(Nc/Nd)

    I don't understand how to get NC from the information given here.

    What is NC given the information stated in the problem?
