EE 2401 Semiconductor Devices

Prerequisites: CHEM 1211, 1211L , MATH 2253


This course focuses on the fundamentals of semiconductor chemistry and physics and how it applies to electrical engineering. Basic electrostatics, such as electric field and potential capacitance, energy and Poisson's equation, quantum nature of electrons in atoms and their energy, quantum nature of light, and energy band concept of single crystals are studied. Various crystalline structures of semiconductors are studied along with proper doping strategies.
