ECE 3311 - Solid-State Devices


Credits: 3

A laboratory-oriented elective course that introduces the working principles of semiconductor devices by fabricating and testing silicon MOSFET transistors and III-V based semiconductor lasers in the SMU cleanroom. Lectures explain the basic operation of diodes, bipolar transistors, field effect transistors, light-emitting diodes, semiconductor lasers, and other photonic devices. Additional lectures discuss the basics of device processing, which include photolithography, oxidation, diffusion, ion-implantation, metalization, and etching. Laboratory reports describing the fabrication and testing of devices account for a major portion of the course grade. Prerequisites: CHEM 1303 , C- or better in ECE 2350 .
