We can remove the index n from this expression and simply write that the

probability [which we denote by fo{E)] that a state of energy E is

electron is given by (7-27) This is called the Fermi-Dirac distribution function. At T

available for occupation by electrons and /d{E) is the probability that those states

will be

**occupied**. This is what we plotted in Figs. 7-4 and 7-5. The total number ofconduction electrons is given by The Fermi energy must be chosen to satisfy ...

9-7 Holes There is an alternate way to describe electric currents arising from

electrons in a given energy band. Let us remove all the electrons from the

states.

9-7 Holes There is an alternate way to describe electric currents arising from

electrons in a given energy band. Let us remove all the electrons from the

**occupied**states and put positively charged particles into the formerly unoccupiedstates.
