Introduction to Electronic and Photonic Devices
This course will focus on physical principles underlying semiconductor devices: electrons and holes in semiconductors , energies and bandgaps, transport properties of electrons and holes, p-n junctions, transistors, light emitting diodes, lasers, solar cells and thermoelectric devices.
Course Notes: Undergraduate level quantum mechanics highly useful, but not required. This course will include a few short laboratory sessions.
Course Requirements: Prerequisite: Math 1b and (Physical Sciences 12a and 12b, Physics 15a and 15b, or Applied Physics 50a and 50b)
