Outline and Purpose of the Course This course explores the fundamentals of semiconductor physics and engineering, which are esseantial to understand semiconductor materials and devices.
Schedule and Contents Band theory,2-3times,Electronic band structures are discussed. Nearly free electron and tight-binding approachs are explained. Band structures of major semiconductors such as Si and GaAs are also discussed.
Carrier transport and scattering,3-4times,Carrier transport and electrical conduction are explained by using the Boltzmann transport equation. Scattering mechanism of carriers and mobility are discussed.
High-field effect,2-3times,Drift of carriers and junction breakdown under high electric field are discussed. A few phenomena under high magnetic field are also explained.
Defects in semiconductors,1-2times,Crystallographic and electronic properties of defects (both extended and point defects) in a semiconductor are explained.
MOS physics,2-3times,Energy band diagrams and carrier statistics in a metal/insulator/semiconductor (MIS) structure are discussed.
Evaluation Methods and Policy Final examination and a few reports
Course Requirements Semiconductor engineering, quantum mechanics (undergraduate level)
