I am having trouble with a "gut understanding" of why the fermi level
is constant across a junction between two materials.? It seems to
trump the electrostatic potential.
I have a mental picture of electrostatic potential as the surface of
water and if two containers filled with water are joined, perhaps by
a tube, water will move from one container to the other until the two
surfaces are at the same height.? Can I add a feature to this mental
picture to include fermi energy?
