Course development and history. The content of these chapters are the pn-junction, bipolar transistor, field effect transistors, properties of semiconductor hetero junctions, quantum wells, and semiconductor lasers and photo-devices. In addition, the students should complete a literature study of their own choice. The individual project should be presented orally to the other students in the group. Semiconductor Physics and Applications, M.
Semiconductor Circuits: Theory, Design and Experiment details the information that are essential in designing and modifying circuits involving transistors and related semiconductor devices. The main concern of the book is the practical aspects of designing transistor circuits. The title first covers the physical theory of semiconductors, which includes the production of pn junctions, and the characteristics and equivalent circuits of transistors. Next, the selection covers the design of circuits, such as oscillator circuits, pulse circuits, and computing circuits. The last part of the text deals with experiment with semiconductors.

This introductory text designed for the first course in semiconductor physics presents a well-balanced coverage of semiconductor physics and device operation and shows how devices are optimized for applications. Topics such as bandstructure, effective masses, holes, doping, carrier transport and lifetimes are discussed. Next, the author focuses on the operation of the important semiconductor devices along with issues relating to the optimization of device performance.
chapter and author info
The goal of this text, as its name implies, is to allow the reader to become proficient in the analysis and design of circuits utilizing discrete semiconductor devices. It progresses from basic diodes through bipolar and field effect transistors. The text is intended for use in a first or second year course on semiconductors at the Associate or Baccalaureate level. In order to make effective use of this text, students should have already taken coursework in basic DC and AC circuits, and have a solid background in algebra and trigonometry along with exposure to phasors. Calculus is used in certain sections of the text but for the most part it is used for equation derivations and proofs, and is kept to a minimum.
