ENGN 1590 - Introduction to Semiconductors and Semiconductor Electronics
An introduction to the physics of fundamental electronic processes that underlie the operation of semiconductor devices on a microscopic scale. Basic electronic properties of semiconductors and effects at interfaces heterogeneous media, such as pn junctions and hetero-structure barriers and quantum wells. These junctions, barriers and wells are used as building blocks for devices, focusing on bipolar and field-effect transistors. Modern trends in micro- and opto-electronic devices are discussed. A brief fabrication lab will introduce pn junction fabrication technology. Prerequisites: ENGN 0410 and 0510.
