Abstract:

An Introduction to the Physics of Semiconductor Devices provides a thorough yet concise introduction to the physical operation of semiconductor devices including diodes, bipolar transistors, MOS field-effect transistors, and junction field-effect transistors, as well as an overview of numerous other devices. Ideal for second- and third-year students in electrical engineering, electronics, and physics, the text is self-contained and includes enough background physics to be accessible to students with no previous exposure to semiconductor devices. The author covers only essential topics, yet provides an in-depth, authoritative treatment of the subject. Taking a novel approach, he keeps the mathematics simple and emphasizes the basic physical operation of each device, making it easier for students to grasp the underlying physical principles.
