ESE 231: INTRODUCTION TO SEMICONDUCTOR DEVICES Spring 2010 Stony Brook University Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering COURSE DESCRIPTION The course covers physical principles of operation of semiconductor devices. Energy bands, transport properties and generation recombination phenomena in bulk semiconductors are covered first. Junctions between semiconductors and metal-semiconductor will then be studied. Equipped with an understanding of the character of physical phenomena in semiconductors, students learn the principles of operation p-n junction diodes, metal-semiconductor contacts, bipolar junction transistors, field effect transistors. This course will provide general background for subsequent courses in electronics. Prerequisites: AMS 361 or MAT 303 and PHY 127 or 132/134 or 142 3 credits Instructor Ridha Kamoua, 237 Light Engineering [email protected] Office Hours M 11:00am 1pm W 12:20pm-2:20pm Class Time M,W: 2:20 3:40, Rm W4530 Library TEXTBOOK “An Introduction to Semiconductor Devices”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
