Semiconductor materials and devices

Syllabus

 

 

Course outline

 In this course, we learn the relevant concepts based on quantum mechanics and solid-state physics pertaining to understanding the key physical mechanisms that govern the electrical and optical properties of semiconductor materials and devices. This course explicitly covers undergraduate-level fundamental physics for operation of electronic devices, and expounds on the practical aspects of devices. Specific topics to be covered are crystal structures, energy band theory, carrier distribution and recombination, carrier transport, and theory of p-n junction, followed by MOSFET (Metal-Oxide Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor) and BJT (Bipolar Junction Transistor) structures.
