IH2658 Semiconductor Theory and Device Physics, Advanced Course 6.0 credits
Halvledarteori och komponentfysik, fortsättningskurs
After completion of the course the student will
- Know the physics of semiconductor junctions, metal-semiconductor junctions and metal-insulator-semiconductor junctions.
- Know the physics and application of semiconductor hetero junctions and quantum-confined structures.
- Understand the fundamental principles and applications of modern electronic and optoelectronic semiconductor devices.
Initial lectures will treat the last nine chapters in the book of Balkanski and Wallis (used for “Semiconductor physics and device theory, basic course” IH2651), or similar material. The content of these chapters are the pn-junction, bipolar transistor, field effect transistors, properties of semiconductor hetero junctions, quantum wells, and semiconductor lasers and photo-devices. In addition, the students should complete a literature study of their own choice. The individual project should be presented orally to the other students in the group.
