Intrinsic concentration Formula

intrinsic_carrier_concentration = sqrt(Coefficient related to specific semiconductor*(Temperature)^3*e^-(Semiconductor bandgap energy/(2*[BoltZ]*Temperature)))
ni = sqrt(Ao*(T)^3*e^-(Eg/(2*[BoltZ]*T)))

What are the factors intrinsic concentration depends on?

This number of carriers depends on the bandgap of the material and on the temperature of the material. A large band gap will make it more difficult for a carrier to be thermally excited across the bandgap, and therefore the intrinsic carrier concentration is lower in higher bandgap materials.
