This work reports the effect of doping concentration on the energy-band structure of semiconductor materials. The research focuses on the resultant values of bandgap energy and its depletion region (length/area), based on the initial concentrations of doping which are the donors and acceptors. The energy-band diagram is simulated by initializing the various materials’ properties of Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Gallium Arsenide (GaAs), and solving the Poisson’s equation derived from Maxwell’s equation. The equation is solved by applying the finite difference method (FDM) and using the Newton-Raphson method. Both of these materials are compared with different doping concentrations (1x1013cm-3-1x1017cm-3). Taking the GaAs properties as the controlled variable, the band structure is validated with literature findings. The measured band gap energy of GaN changes from 1.5215eV to 7.6689eV, and GaAs, from 1.1330eV to 5.6431eV. It increases with the proportion to the doping concentration increments. However, when obtaining both of the spatial active regions for GaN and GaAs, it reduce from (1.9990μm-0.0790μm)x1μm2 and from (1.9990μm-0.0890μm)x1μm2 respectively. The findings show the effect of doping concentration on the semiconductor energy-band structure. Thus, the numerical system is expected to be used as the determination of the internal quantum efficiency, and the output spectrum of light-emitting diode (LED) chip.
