Semiconductor devices are ubiquitous in today’s world and foundincreasingly in cars, kitchens, and electronic door looks,attesting to their presence in our daily lives. This comprehensivebook brings you the fundamentals of semiconductor device theoryfrom basic quantum physics to computer aided design.
Advanced Theory of Semiconductor Devices will helpimprove your understanding of computer simulation devices through athorough discussion of basic equations, their validity, andnumerical solutions as they are contained in current simulationtools. You will gain state-of-the-art knowledge of devices used inboth III-V compounds and silicon technology. Specially featured arenovel approaches and explanations of electronic transport,particularly in p-n junction diodes. Close attention is also givento innovative treatments of quantum level laser diodes and hotelectron effects in silicon technology.
This in-depth book is designed expressly for graduate students,research scientists, and research engineers in solid stateelectronics who want to gain a better grasp of the principlesunderlying semiconductor devices.
