We present a discussion regarding the conduction band non-parabolicity and the Fermi energy of Al doped ZnO (AZO) degenerate semiconductors using the higher orders of Fermi–Dirac (F-D) integrals. We find an analytical expression for Fermi energy, based on two-band k.p theory and modified Boltzmann's classical equation. We examine the accuracy of resulted expression using absolute error value.
