We study the stationary problem in the whole space Rn for the drift-diffusion model arising in semiconductor device simulation and plasma physics. We prove the existence and uniqueness of stationary solutions in the weighted Lp spaces. The proof is based on a fixed point theorem of the Leray-Schauder type.
