EEE 436/591--Fundamentals of Solid State Devices Spring 2010 Time and Place : 3:00-4:15 pm TTh, PEBE 201 Instructor : Prof. Brian J. Skromme Office : ERC 155 Ph. (480) 965-8592 FAX (480) 965-8118 e-mail: skromme@asu.edu Office hours : 3:40-4:30 pm MW, 10:40-11:30 pm TTh. Other times by appointment only; please try to come during the assigned hours unless you have a conflict. E- mail questions accepted any time (may not be answered immediately); questions by phone accepted during office hours only. Final Exam : 12:10-2:00 pm, Thursday, May 6 th , in the usual classroom. HW Solutions: Will be available shortly after due date on the BlackBoard web site. Catalog Description : Semiconductor fundamentals, pn junctions, metal-semiconductor contacts, metal-oxide-semiconductor capacitors and field-effect transistors, bipolar junction transistors. Pre-requisite: EEE 352 (Properties of Electronic Materials). Prerequisites by Topic: It is assumed that you already have a thorough understanding of the concepts and equations in Chs. 1-3 of the text, Semiconductor Device Fundamentals , with the possible exceptions of Fermi-Dirac integrals and quasi-Fermi levels. (This material should all have been covered in EEE 352; it is also equivalent to Vol. I of the Modular Series on Solid State Devices.) You should also be familiar with circuit applications of diodes, bipolar and field-effect transistors, and have a basic understanding of electrostatics, particularly Poisson’s equation, the integral and differential forms of Gauss’s Law, electrostatic potentials, capacitance, dielectrics, and continuity conditions across dielectric boundaries.
