Description of the performance characteristics and limitations of basic semiconductor electronic devices in terms of the properties of semiconductor mateials and device structure.
Graduate students in this field require a knowledge of the performance characteristics and limitations of basic semiconductor electronics devices to model these devices and to design electronic systems using these devices. The syllabus change adds new material on crystal growth with some compression of material on the device physics.
