1 Answer

Answer :

Fermi energy is the part of electron band diagram.Fermi energy is highest energy that the electron assume at T = 0 K. Fermi level comes in between conduction band and valance band. In case of insulator the energy gap between conduction band and valance band is high, In case of semiconductor energy gap is small, And in case of conductor energy gap is overlap.
