Objectives of 6.720J/3.43J 1. Solid understanding of basic physical phenomena pervasive in microelectronic devices : • carrier transport (drift and diffusion) • carrier generation and recombination • carrier injection and extraction • energy scale, time scale and length scale of key phenomena • minority-vs. majority-carrier type devices • pervasive non-ideal and parasitic effects • energy band diagrams Objectives of 6.720J/3.43J (cont.) 2. Solid understanding (physics and modeling) of main- stream integrated microelectronic devices : •p-n d iode • Schottky diode MOSFET •BJT 3. Appreciation of major trends in microelectronics industry .
