2 Semiconductor Materials Objective : 1. Understand the electronic properties of semiconductor materials materials. Questions to be answered : – What is a crystal, and how do we describe one? – What do semiconductor crystals look like? EE360 – Lecture 2 – What are Miller indicies and why do we use them? Atomic Ordering in Semiconductors atoms grains Pierret, p. 6 EE360 – Lecture 2 Semiconductors can me amorphous, polycrystalline, or crystalline.
