Problem 21
Q

The energy gap EgE_\textrm{g} in germanium is 0.72 eV. When used as a photon detector, roughly how many electrons can be made to jump from the valence to the conduction band by the passage of an 830-keV photon that loses all its energy in this fashion?

A
1.2×106 electrons/photon1.2 \times 10^6 \textrm{ electrons/photon}
