Consider a region of silicon devoid of electrons and holes, with an ionized donor density of
$${\mathrm N}_\mathrm d^+=10^{17}\;\mathrm{cm}^{-3}$$. The electric field at x = 0 is 0 V/cm and the electric field at x = L is
50 kV/cm in the positive x direction. Assume that the electric field is zero in the y and z directions
at all points.

Given q = 1.6 × 10^{−19} coulomb, $$\varepsilon$$_{0} = 8.85 × 10^{−14} F/cm, $$\varepsilon$$_{r} = 11.7 for silicon, the value of L in
nm is ________.
