Th. EE329 Office Hours: 9 - 10:00am Tu. Th. and 9 to 12:00pm Wed. Office Location: ENG 357 Office Phone: 408-924-4073 E-mail: [email protected] Preferred Contact: email Department Fax: 408-924-3925 2. Course Description: a. Course Objectives: For the students to be able to understand characteristics and behavior of semiconductor devices. In the process, fundamental concepts in solid-state semiconductor physics are reviewed and applied to derive current-voltage characteristics of several key semiconductor devices such as diodes, bipolar junction transistors, and metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistors. Methods of device fabrication are introduced. Basic concepts in nanotechnology and nanoelectronics are introduced. b. Topics included: Review of quantum mechanics applied to solid-state physics, energy band theory, carrier generation and transport. Review of semiconductor process technology. Nanotechnology and related basic physics concepts. PN junction diode; diode fabrication, nanofabrication and characterization, pn junction at equilibrium, steady state, and transient behavior. Metal semiconductor junction, Schottky barrier, and Ohmic behavior. Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor (MOS) Field-Effect-Transistor: MOS capacitor, field effect, NMOS, PMOS, CMOS, current-voltage characteristics, and switching. Nanoelectronic devices, single electron device. Bipolar junction transistor: carrier transport in pnp/npn structure, amplification, current-voltage characteristics, and switching.
