Course Name: Physics of Semiconductor Devices
Prerequisites: Quantum Mechanics
This graduate course is one of the most important classical courses for the semiconductor major. It explains the basic terminology, models, properties, and concepts associated with semiconductors and semiconductor devices. It gives readers immediate access to detailed descriptions of the underlying physics and performance characteristics of all major bipolar, field-effect, microwave, photonic, optoelectronics, and sensor devices. Besides, it also provide a study and reference on the state-of-art development of modern semiconductor devices. After completion of this course, it is expected that graduate students benefit from the systematic and analytical methodology in sovling practice device problems in their graduate thesis work in the short term, as well their lifelong career of scientific research.
