1 Course: EE339 Solid-State Electronic Devices (Fall 1011; T & Th, 2:00-3:15 PM, ENS ACA 1.104; unique no. 16750) Instructor: Leonard Frank lin Register Goals: (1) Familiarization with the basic physics of charge carriers in semiconductors, (2) application of this knowledge to understanding the essential operating principles of basic semiconductor devices, and (3) laying a foundation for understanding the essential operating principles of semiconductor devices or device variations not covered in this course but which may be encountered in the future, and/or for more detailed study of semiconductor devices. Course Text (required): Ben G. Streetman & Sanjay Banerjee, Solid State Electronic Devices (Sixth Edition) Class notes, other course materials and course web site Pdf versions of PowerPoint foils used in class, homework assignments and solutions, and general announcements to the class will be provided through Blackboard at courses.utexas.edu (and https://wikis.utexas.edu/display/bbsupport/Home+Page for support). Notes: Many figures in the class notes are borrowed from the course text, from Theory of Semiconductor Devices by Karl Hess, and from Physics of Semiconductors and Their Heterostructures by Jasprit Singh, as indicated. Reading the class notes alone is not a substitute for attending class . Prerequisites: M 427K (e.g., integral calculus, differential equations, Fourier series, vectors, vector calculus, gradients), and PHY 303L & 103N (primary laws of motion, wave phenomena, electricity and magnetism, optics) with a grade of at least C in each. Instructor Offices and Contact Information: Offices: 536 ENS, Main Campus & 2.606B MER, J.J. Pickle Research Campus Phone: 232-1868 Email: [email protected] (I will not try to explain course material via email)
