ECE 5310 - Introduction to Semiconductors


Credits: 3

Studies the basic principles in physics and chemistry of semiconductors that have direct applications on device operation and fabrication. Topics include basic semiconductor properties, elements of quantum mechanics, energy band theory, equilibrium carrier statistics, carrier transport, and generation-recombination processes. Applies these physical principles to semiconductor devices. Devices studied include metal-semiconductor junctions, p n junctions, LEDs, semiconductor lasers, bipolar junction transistor, field-effect transistors, and integrated circuits. Emphasizes obtaining the governing equations of device operation based on physical properties. Prerequisite: ECE 3311 .
